Yes it is & there are plenty of posts on how to do this here; http://www.hometalk.com/search?filter=paint+cabinets
The only thing I can't stress enough is proper prep - use TSP for cleaning, etc... (you should be close to spending 70 - 80% of your time prepping as compared to actually painting)
I second SLS...Kitchens are much harder (compared to a bath) due to the invisible oil and grease layer that years of cooking have deposited.
Clean clean clean, TSP, light sand. prime.paint.
Thank you for your help. Is TSP a solvent or cleaner of some kind? Is it a brand name?
TSP stands for Trisodium Phosphate. it is a dry powder that you mix with water. It has a pretty high pH so wear some sturdy gloves and rinse well after use.
I also us TSP on everything before I paint. Always rinse.
Thank you for your help.
Once I prepare my ugly, oak cabinets for painting, what kind of paint should I use, oil, latex, etc.? thank you.
I'd go with a latex enamel in semi-gloss. the lower sheen stuff is harder to keep clean. and Oil based is really tough to work with.
