We've had some traditional cabinets fabricated for the kitchen of our 100-year-old California bungalow, and plan to paint them white. Three questions:
1) I've heard that cabinetry is usually done in oil-based primer and paint since it is more highly trafficked, as opposed to walls or ceilings, which are typically done in water-based primer and paint. True?
2) Would semi-gloss be the logical finish?
3) Are interiors of cabinets (walls, shelves, insides of doors, etc) usually painted as well?
