My kitchen cabinets are wood treated with linseed oil. I want to paint them but have no idea what to do before I paint, is priming enough? Will the paints stick to the linseed oil? and if they can easily be painted, can a normal oil based paint be used?

Be cautious, the paint will usually NOT adhere to an oily surface. Please contact a local paint dealer for his advice. For assistance, take a door with you so he might be able to test for adhesion.
