These are excellent suggestions. I read the advice from pros on how to paint cabinets and found it very sound. It will take a couple of extra days to do it that way, but it will pay many dividends down the road. If your friends say, “When did you find time to paint your cabinets?” you know that you didn’t do a very good job. If they say, “Wow, how much did it cost you to have these painted?” you will be thankful that you followed their advice. I would also be coldly objective about the quality of the existing cabinets because many of those originally installed in tract homes are not worth the effort to refurbish. Mine are garbage. If I were to paint them, I would just have painted garbage.

Good point Joseph, like lipstick on a pig as they say. I agree. I'm not a big fan of painted cabinets only because I personally, love the richness of real wood in a home. I don't even like painted trim or baseboards but that all depends on the style of the home.

Thank you for including my link! This is post is truly a great resource for kitchen design!
