1. We have a set of pine furniture. How would l go about changing them to what you have done.

      Pine furniture is a little bit different because there isn’t any grain. I would still use a paint sprayer (it makes the job so much easier!), but you’d have a bit more freedom on which type of paint to use. Here’s our original cabinet painting tutorial: https://www.ninahendrick.com/how-to-paint-oak-cabinets/

  2. We refinished our oak cabinets about 5 years ago too and they’ve held up well…other than the edges where we hold or touch them when we open and close them. Your comment about a top coat never occurred to us and I don’t remember reading about it. Great story.
    We’re on to a master bathroom and refinishing an antique buffet! Another challenge!

      So glad yours have help up well, too! Best wishes with your new project, I’m sure it will be awesome!

  3. What process did you do to paint the cabinets. I am about to paint mine. What kind of material are you cabinets made with. Looks like mine and would love your in put. Thank you in advasnce!!

  4. Enjoyed this post as we are thinking of painting the kitchen cabinets in a house we own that will be rented. This will be a temporary fix as we eventually plan to redo the kitchen. Much of the bench top is stainless steel but there are two small sections that are not and we are going to paint them as well and see how they stand up. Thank you for sharing your story.

      You’re welcome, Nancy! Good luck with your project!

  5. Nice to see your old cabinets are going to be used again. Always good. What kind of paint did you use. I’m repainting our cabinets this week coming and i’m Going to buy paint tomorrow as it’s the only day I have to make the 50 mile round trip trek. Thanks for any info.

    What a thrill to be able to get completely new kitchen! Congrats! I have oak cabinets and want to paint them but have been told by hardware companies and carpenters, that there is no way to hide the over lay hinges. How did you do it? I want to paint mine but the hinge issue stops me. Help!!!
