How do you paint stained kitchen cabinets?



I want a fresh look for my kitchen which is over 40 years old.

    Stained cabinets need a good primer like Zinseer B-I-N to prevent stain bleeding through paint. Of course a real good cleaning, a light sand and tack cloth off to remove dust before priming and painting. I like to lightly sand my primer too, and tack it off, cause I like super smooth paint jobs. I use Kitchen and Bath paint, semi-gloss to keep it each to use, but I also like satin finish.

    Make sure you use a good stain blocking primer. If you use a paint sprayer instead of rollers or brushes you will get a better finish. I have a wagner sprayer it is good. Some people like the homerite sprayer.
