Question on painting cabinets from black to white

Posted by buddysmom (My Page) on

I am redoing my kitchen island. It is 24 years old and was originally maple. I had it painted a dull/distressed-looking black about 8 years ago and now I want to paint it white.

I've cleaned with TSP, sanded, wiped and will caulk where needed. Should two coats of Kilz primer and two coats of white paint do it?

If anyone could recommend a specific primer and any other suggestions I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Forget the Kilz, go to a real paint store like Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams or any other and get what they recommend.
I would go with Fresh Start and one coat of primer is all you ever need( with quality primers) two is just a waste or time and $$
