I want to paint my Kitchen cabinets & want to know the best paint to use,brand,oil or latex and if it is possible to paint them. They are a builder grade cabinet,cabinet fronts are wood but the side are some fake wood - so i need to know if its a project that it possible - kitchen is small & dont have the money to replace them so I wanted to brighten this area. Any help would be appreciated.
As long as you are willing to take the time to do it right, it's possible to do it. You are going to have to prime before you paint though. If you don't want to prime at least rough the cabinets up before you paint them. What's on the cabinets now, are they painted or stained?
