Love this kitchen re-do ... especially converting some of the cabinets to the open hutch-type shelf on the left, and the replacement of the light fixture - granite is nice as well, and the white DOES give a clean look (though I actually like wood cabinet faces) posted by The Money Pit: Kitchen Reveal: 80's to AWESOME!

To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP Easy Surface Prep', available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work. It was recommended to me by a professional painter.
