    Very light coats is key. Too much paint in any one spot causes drips.

    You could definitely spray paint the doors. To avoid drips, you have to do many very thin coats instead of thick coats of paint.

    You shouldn't have any drips at all if you use the spray as instructed. Shake the can well, start spraying very lightly in multiple light coats rather than one heavy coat. Be sure to keep the spray can a good distance from the cabinet as well. If you already have drips, wipe carefully, let dry and then spray a light coat over the area. Sounds like you may be trying to cover too well with one heavy coat and getting drips. It's frustrating, but truly several coats of fine spray are much better than one heavy coat! I speak from experience :(

    Shake your cans, do light coats in an even sweeping motion. Can you take the doors off and spray laying down?
