first step is to make sure your cabinets are clean clean clean. Next, I would get some sand paper and lightly sand the cabinets. You don't need to apply too much pressure just a very light sanding. Next, I would use an OIL base primer on all the areas to be painted. Follow this up with a latex acrylic paint. Use a good brush or a foam roller with the acrylic paint. I used this method on my cabinets and it has lasted for five years and counting.
