I've got kitchen cabinet doors with white laminate surface - thinking about just roughing the surfaces up with sandpaper and painting them a brighter color for a cheap short-term makeover. Will paint stick, or do I have to remove the laminate?

Make sure the doors are clean (no grease)- sand them lightly (120 grit) - damp wipe - dry them.

Apply one coat of Glidden Ultra-Hide Gripper and then two coats of Glidden Evermore Interior Latex Semi-Gloss - in whatever color you choose.

Both Glidden products are available at The Home Depot.

ps Make sure you don't try to wash the cabinets for at least 30 days AFTER you paint them or you may damage the paint

Before you apply the Glidden Latex Semi-Gloss you had better find out how resistant to blocking it is as if it is not your doors and drawers will stick to the base unit like glue and you will have a mess on your hands.
I am sure the folks at HD will know the answer to this.
Good luck.
