well i have seen modern kitchens that has painted and stained cabs
the one side cabinet had long glass doors that came down to about five inches from the counter top
so i remove the doors and shorten the sides of the cabinet so i have room to prepare food ,it's now a shelf
i won't use behr paint, i like valspar
