Welcome to our community Jana4b!

 

Thank you for your question! I will tell you what I did when I painted my cabinets. It was pretty easy and it has lasted for a long time. :smileyvery-happy:

 

The first thing I did was prime the cabinets with an oil based primer. I was going from dark brown to bright white, so I did 2 coats.

 

Then, I did two coats of latex based paint in a semi-gloss finish. Lightly sand in between each coat with 180 grit sandpaper.

 

For applying the paint and primer, I brushed them on. Also, I would recommend taking down the cabinet doors before you paint them. They will be much easier to paint on a horizontal surface.

 

If you have any more questions, please let us know!

 

Christine :smileyhappy:
