Looking at your cabinets, and agreeing with the advice given above, I think you might get the front parts looking better than the carcasses. If your ultimate goal is to update the kitchen then I’d strongly suggest looking at some of the ready to assemble cabinets like these As a novice woodworker, you’ve got a heavy learning curve to get to the point of making doors or even cabinets. If you total the costs with the time involved, you could be looking to have counter tops measured after a week or so rather than weeks of living within a project. I’ve been there and done that and learned the lesson of writing a check rather than getting to do it myself and not being totally happy with the end result and starting over. Just my opinion, but there are lots of ways to get a high end look with out the high end price.
