    Remove hardware, doors and drawers, Mark on back where they go. Wash down with TSP and then sand the sheen off. Prime with oil based primer, lightly sand. Paint 2 coats of oil based paint. Semi gloss.

    How to Paint Cabinets

    Make sure they are clean and dry. Remove the doors and hardware. Mark the doors and cabinets with tape where they go. Lightly sand the doors and cabinets to remove any gloss and roughen the surface for paint with 100 grit sandpaper or a green Scotch Brite pad.. Use a tack cloth or damp rag to remove dust after sanding. Prime with a stain blocking primer like KILZ. Acrylic or water base paints are low-fume and clean up easily with water. Alkyd or oil-based paints require good ventilation because the paint contains solvents that can irritate your lungs and make you feel sick. Alkyd options require mineral spirits for cleanup, but they provide a hard, durable paint finish. Whichever you use, buy the best-quality paint you can afford for a lasting kitchen cabinet finish. Seal with at least three coats with a water based polyurethane. Use a small foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.

    I painted my bathroom cabinets without sanding or sealing using Valspar cabinet paint. There are other brands that also make paint especially developed for cabinets that are very durable. Here is a video on how I did it. I hope it helps.
