I am going to paint my kitchen cupboards which are currently wood with a stain and varnish finish. Wondering if anyone can tell me how much to sand them before applying my Kilz, so that the doors and drawers don't stick after 3-4 coasts of paint. Thanks.

I painted the cab. in my first home, and it really takes very little sanding. You want to be sure to wash them down with TSP to make sure there is no greasy residue on them. TSP is also called liquid sand paper. It will give it enough of a tooth to let the Kills bond to it. Good luck.
