Re: Modify cabinets before painting them
I would caution against cutting the doors. Most of the time they barely cover the opening as it is, if you trim the bevel off, you'll have even less door.
As for painting, paint shouldn't affect the core of the doors. You will want to wash them with TSP (in the paint department ) and rinse them thoroughly. Once dry, use a good primer such as Zinnser's Bull's Eye 123 (blue label ) before applying two top coats of your favorite paint.
