Then you will have black painted kitchen cabinets in minutes! Here are some steps to do so.
Removing your cabinet doors and all of the hardware is the first thing you have to do. Empty it out if you want to paint the inside shelving of the cabinets too. And if your kitchen is large and has good ventilation, you can work on your cabinets’ doors inside as long as you are using interior paint or you can bring them outdoors or into your garage. After that you can wipe down all the surfaces that you are planning to paint using a mixture of 1 cup of ammonia to 1 gallon of warm water. You can repeat this two or three times if you think it is necessary. This is as the way to remove any residual grease. Fill the existing holes using sparkle or wood filler if you want to use new hardware and handles by drilling new holes. You can allow them to dry.

Using painter’s tape to protect your walls and ceiling near the edges of the cabinets, you can cover the backsplash with newspaper and put a drop cloth on your appliances to protect them. Then you can start to paint your cabinets into a beautiful black painted kitchen cabinets bunch by choosing an interior semi-gloss or high-gloss black latex paint. A nice sheen will be created if you use it. It will also make your cabinets easier to clean. After that you can paint 2 or 3 coats of your chosen paint for good and dark coverage.
