Advice for painting laminate kitchen cabinets

Hi, I am going to paint my really ugly fake wood kitchen cabinets. Is there anyone who has done this before? I would like to be directed to any previous posts, and would be delighted to hear from anyone who is undertaking the same unfun project. I have read some of the paint posts and I am planning to use good quality paint. I really need some prep advice, as well as some hints on making sure my paint cures properly.
Thank you

Painting laminate

I haven't done this myself yet, but plan on starting soon. From what I understand, you need to clean with a degreaser, sand lightly, prime, sand primer, paint, and do a top coat. Some of the sites I've looked at recommend using a strong bonding primer to get a good adhesion to the surface. Good luck
