Cabinet Recoloring

Does anyone have any experience with this product?

http://cabinets.rustoleumtransformations.com/

I plan to turn my medium brown cabinets to a white. There seems there is a small percentage of reviews that have issues with oak cabinets. It seems the oils from the wood bleed through and tint the white yellow.

I have a couple spare doors to do a test run with before I dive in. But I was wondering, how would I be able to tell if my doors are oak?

All I know is...

You can use a sealing primer before painting. Like stain KILLZ.

how good of a job do you want? my wife's parents had someone professionally spray all of their wood cabinets and they came out looking like new. i painted mine myself with a brush and they look like shiat. also are you wanting the wood grains to show through or be solid white?

I've heard a lot of good things about the Rustoleum product you mentioned. As for the potential oak bleeding through, you might just give it an extra coat of high hiding primer...check some other forums for recommendations.

I was thinking the same but there are some really good reviews, complete with before and after pics. It doesn't have to be perfect. If I were replacing them entirely then I would expect perfection.
