    Even if you paint them, you need to scrub them clean first Any oils around handles will cause some bleed-through, so it is worth your time to scrub them first!
  • Photo? How about cleaning them first, then decide. Dawn dish soap, Murphy's Oil Soap, vinegar, all work well depending on the surface.

    I recommend washing your cabinets with a solution of three parts water and one part vinegar. If grease and grime involved, add a tablespoon of Dawn dish soap. If you still want to paint your cupboards, remove the handles and hinges. You can scrub them, and spray paint them. Everything will look new and fresh. Best of luck to you.

    Yes, although it is possible, for maximum success, proper preparation and use of quality tools and products is the key.

    Also you can do the above and then change the hardware for a different look and it will make you feel like you did a whole makeover.
