Since a few people asked how i painted my Oak cabinets white, i decided id post the steps. Iv done this a few times and this is what i find is the best way. I took all the doors off and lightly sanded the cabinets and doors. I first primed the cabinets and used 2 coats of primer. Then i started on one side of the doors and applied 2 coats to each side. For the primer i used a thin brush and brushed it into the grooves of the doors. Than i go over it with a small sponge roller to get rid of the brush lines. I did the same with the paint. I used a latex paint and applied 3 coats over the primer following the same steps as the primer. After everything was dry i applied 3-4 coats of poly over it. With the poly i first covered the surface with the sponge roller but then went over it with a brush to get rid of the air bubbles. The poly doesn't show brush lines but it takes to long to cover the surface with just a brush. If you use just the roller, a lot of air bubbles will appear when it dries. If you want to use a glaze, i used a gel stain and a really thin pain brush and brushed it into the grooves of the doors and then took a cloth and wiped it off. It takes a while but it gave the doors great dimension. You glaze it before you put the poly on. I haven't had a problem with chipping because i have a lot of poly. Without the poly it chips in days. If its hard to understand the way i described it or if i left anything out, feel free to ask. Hope it helps a little.
