Painting the kitchen cabinets was a big project! The cabinets were oak stained a dark color and I wanted to lighten them up so we painted them a off white and put a faux finish on them. They turned out good and I sure am glad we are done with that (I'm not going to do that again). I really didn't want to redo them myself and I got a estimate from a guy that refinishes cabintes and his quote was $4000. after I got up off the floor I decided I can do this and for $300. I'm happy with it.
