To prepare the cabinets, I sanded them, applied Liquid sandpaper (deglosser), then three coats of Behr Plus paint (the one with primer) in satin enamel finish and the color was Antique White. To finish it off I applied 3 coats of wipe-on poly. I talked to a friend in town who paints and sells furniture, she recommended I do this and the paint would not chip.
Here is the after pictures
The afternoon was overcast for the pictures but still with the painted cabinets my kitchen is so much brighter. In fact, our lighting is on a dimmer and we have to dim the lights a bit in the evenings. Wonderful problem to have! I am so happy, well more like thrilled and overjoyed with the transformation. The power of paint, amazing what a gallon will do. I have less than $100 in supplies for my cabinets and two weeks of painting time.
Future plans are to eventually replace the appliances in stainless steel. The old dishwasher died in November, so we replaced it with stainless steel.
