What if I am going to paint my cabinets and the sides are not wood? Doors and fronts of boxes are oak and in good shape, but the sides are not "real wood" and are covered with something I can explain only as a "picture" of stained wood (I'm sure there is a term for it!). I am considering painting and wanted to see what some of you have done. Surely a few have run into this problem at some point? P.S. I did not pick out these cabinets ;) Thanks for any suggestions and comments.
