can you paint acrylic based paint over wood cabinets previously painted with an oil based paint?
Yes provided you prime first with a stain killer such as kills, a light sanding before the primer would also help,instead of sanding you could wipe the surface with liquid sandpaper
Speaking as an artist you shouldn't paint acrylics over the top of oils as this will lead the oil paint to possibly crack as it takes a lot longer to dry than acrylic. However, I guess it might be different with paints used on furniture but personally I wouldn't risk it - I would try and sand down the old paint first to get most of it off.
