Cabinet finish - white stain vs white paint

9 years ago

Done to the nitty gritty here and trying to achieve the look of this mock-up photo. I know lavender in the kitchen is to put it nicely, a unique choice:-)

I am hoping for a finish to new cabinet doors and drawers in which the colors will have some depth or just a tinge of variation in color, so I thought a white stain might yield a better result than paint. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this with a paint or stain? Can you paint directly on wood without a primer instead of staining and if so what type of paint would be best?
