How should I prepare to paint melamine cabinets?

For the finishing touch, I want a glossy look.
Expert Answer:
You will have to sand your surface and make sure that it is free of any grease or dirt. Then you will have to use an enamel oil primer to prepare the surface for paint. To get the gloss look for your cupboards you will have to have them sprayed. If you can't, the next best thing to use would be a foam roller. This will minimize the texture that you get with a regular roller. You can buy foam rollers at your local hardware store.
