How can I repaint metal kitchen Cabinets?

My kitchen cabinets are mostly metal with the exception of the doors on the upper cabinets, which are wood. What would be the best way to have these cabinets repainted? They are currently lemonade yellow which really isn't me.

You can paint your metal cabinets, but you would first want to clean them with an industrial cleaner to remove any kitchen grease and particulates. Then sand with 220- or 400-grit sandpaper followed by the application of a metal primer. Then you can finish coat with an acrylic latex paint. The key is in the prep work.
