This was my first attempt at a DIY budget kitchen renovation. It all started with replacing the kitchen faucet, then wanting to replace the cabinet hardware to match it. It grew into a full-blown renovation before I knew it.
It's not a big kitchen - 19 doors, 4 drawers. I went with a two-tone gray color design. Preparation was light sanding and a deglosser "Liquid Sandpaper", and one coat of primer KILZ on the bottom cabinets, Zinsser 1-2-3 on the uppers. No paint sprayer, all brushed by hand. Used "painter's pyramids" http://www.painterspyramid.com/ to elevate the cabinet doors.
It was a labor of love, took longer than expected working solo and allowing paint to dry overnight between coats; but, it turned out great. If I can do it, anyone can do it!
