I own a 90-year house after living the majority of my life in a maintenance free community. . .so be gentle with me.

My kitchen cabinets were recently painted by the former owner. There are spots (around knobs) worn down to bare wood. I believe the paint to be latex because it's stretchy in the worn spots.

I want to repaint the cabinets but need basic help such as:
> Paint type - oil based, latex enamel. . .
> Prep needed to paint over existing paint?
> Tools of choice - 3" foam roller, sprayer?
> Doors off to paint?
> Tips and/or Pitfalls???

Your forum as been invaluable to me!

I have wooden cubbards that were dark and wanted to brighten my kitchen up, so, I got some house paint that I was able to wash over and over (I have kids)I took my cubbards off and painted the base 1st then I painted the cubbards. Do one coat at a time. I used a roller for texture. It all depends on what kind of texture you want.

I had a similar question, which I posted October 12. You might want to check out the replies I got. Someone recommended I also post the question under "furniture", which I did and actually got a more comprehensive answer there. Good luck.
