Painting kitchen unit doors

Decided to have a go at painting the kitchen unit doors.

Any tips appreciated from people who have already had a go. I suspect a good cleaning to get the grease off is first on the list!

Materials needed, type of paint, brush or roller? etc

Also, do people take the doors off, or paint them in situe?

Thanks in advance.

There is a special primer that gives a base coat on any surface.I forget the name of it but anyone at B&Q etc will know.
Take the doors off or you'll get in a mess.Oh,and don't think it's a small job,it's not.I'll never do it again.:thumbsup:

Depending on your budget, it may be worth you looking in B&Q or Ikea for replacement doors and drawer fronts instead, as you will get a much better finish without quite a bit of the hassle.

Ikea are excellent for prices. We re-did our entire kitchen (including carcasses for cupboards etc) for less than 1200 quid.

For £300-400 you could replace the doors/drawers.

More expensive than paint I know, but another possibility nonetheless.
