Can I Finish White Cabinets?

Submitted By

We'd like to paint our oak kitchen cabinets.  Your article on this topic was really helpful, but I have one follow-up question: I'm concerned that the paint will chip or scrub off, so I want to finish it once its dry.  However, my past experience with polyurethane or varnish resulted in yellowing. Since the color I want is a crisp white, yellowing would be bad.  

Is a clear finish necessary? If so, what could we use that wouldn't yellow?
