    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 200 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 use Old English furniture polish/cleaner on mine twice a year and it really makes them look new again. It also covers any scratches or knicks. Another idea would be to paint them and bring them up to date and modernize the kitchen. White or gray is really popular now. You could also consider using a chalk paint which requires no sanding for prep work. Just wipe them down, chalk paint, and then a finish like polyurethane.

    You could paint them, you could change the hardware, you could even add trim/shaker style molding (if you don't have this already).
