I am not sure what you mean by cheap cabinets. I have not painted wood cabinets in years but we would lightly sand (prefer) or use "liquid sand". Prime and paint. I like oil base on wood. Check with your local paint store for their recommendations.

Good luck on this site. I asked for help on an exterior paint job that is peeling after a couple months, paid contractor $6000.00. No one answered. Disappointed that no one helped me.

We painted our stained cabinets 3 times in 30 years and the only reason was we wanted a new color. I know paint with primer and easy is all the rage now, but we used oil paint...yes they do still make oil...what we use is made by Old Village Paint. It's a little more work for clean up and you have to be careful after all it is oil...protect your floors and stuff, but this stuff is amazing! The finish is unreal. It only comes in premixed colors, but the have a lot of them. They offer a lot of other products too which I can't vouch for...we have painted several pieces of furniture and our kitchen cabinets as I said and I can't tell you how much we love this stuff.
