I moved into a house where the former owner had painted all the YK cabints/drawers a terrible brown. I just roughed up the surfaces with sandpaper, masked everything off, then primed & spray painted everything white. Almost 7 yrs on, they still look great. I also had a friend who took her cabinets'
/drawers to an autobody place and had them painted w/ autobody paint. They looked great, too.
