$200 kitchen cabinet makeover: Glue sheets of bead board into the recessed part of the cabinet panel; sand, prime (oil based), paint (latex), and glaze. Replace hardware. Counter tops off the shelf from Lowe's for $60.
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. @ Pin For Your Home
