This is the before picture of my kitchen. The TSP will clean any remaining grease and help remove some of the shine. I switched from handles to knobs so I only filled one hole on each door. On the lower doors I filled the lower hole, on the upper doors I filled the upper hole.
I did not paint the inside of my cabinets. I used grit sand paper. I did the doors and drawer fronts outside.
Make sure to wipe off ALL dust from sanding. I never emptied my cabinets, however I had some small cheap garbage bags that I used to cover up my contents. After I finished sanding, I removed the plastic and threw it away. Wipe down all dust. Not Pictured Below tape off any areas that will be too difficult to keep paint from splattering.
I taped the edge where my counter top meets the front of the counter. I used oil based primer as a base for all wood surfaces.
I used a sprayer from Harbor Freight. Two coats of primer, lightly sanding in between coats. Allow paint to dry thoroughly before moving ahead on any of these paint steps. I did not tape any front facings. Using a foam roller helps the paint not to get inside the cabinets. Spray outdoors doors and drawer fronts with latex paint.
Use a small foam roller to paint the facings and ends of cabinets. Again, I let this coat dry 24 hours. All in all, I did about 4 light coats on the doors and drawer fronts with my sprayer. I did three light coats foam roller on all the facings and cabinet ends.
Allow all wood surfaces to fully cure before reinstalling.
I waited about two weeks, storing the doors and drawer fronts indoors while they cured. Install all hardware and reinstall all doors and drawer fronts in their original places.
I used a small foam roller for the front facings. I only bought one little tray for this job, so using a plastic bag allowed me to reuse it without cleaning it with mineral spirits.
My sprayer was from Harbor Freight. This one pretty much ran all the time I was spraying. I also painted my vinyl floor.
