Well, get 3 estimates and do NOT go with the cheapest one.

behr paint and brush?


Maybe I'm missing something here, and someone can clarify: How do we know what these cabinets are made of? The OP hasn't mentioned the materials.

If, like mine, the cabinet doors are plywood while everything else is constructed of particle board with a wood grain laminate (or whatever it is), wouldn't that affect the prep/paint process? Or does particle board (if there is any present here) sand/prime/paint with the same characteristics as 'real' wood?

The process of scuff sand, bonding primer, finish would apply to practically all types of cabinets, generally.

I would clean them with tsp or similar, scuff sand, apply an adhesion(bonding) primer and then an enamel, Sherwin Williams Proclassic or similar. I personally wouldn't use Behr, especially on cabinets.
