    Theodore...did u sand & use primer or paint with primer included? The sanding helps the primer & paint adhere.

    Did you lightly sand to remove any shine? Did you prime the cabinets? Did you seal the cabinets? Three coats of a water base polyurethane.

    The shinier the finish the more prep work no matter what you are refinishing /painting. The cabinets need sanded/more prep. so the new finish will stick/adhere. You can try KILZ® Adhesion Primer it is a water-base, modified-acrylic primer specifically formulated to bond to a variety of 'tough-to-paint' surfaces.but I'd rough up surfaces with sand paper first then wipe/clean surface well to remove grease residue then use the bonding primer then you can paint.
