DIY Kitchen Cabinet Refacing - why not?

We have been quoted 9k-11k to reface our 17 door, 6 drawer L shaped kitchen (not a big size). I took the measurements of all the doors and drawers and plugged them into cabinetnow and I've found that for around $3500 I can get all door and drawer fronts already painted. I would then paint the boxes myself and install the doors, or have them installed if this is an arduous process. I feel like I must be missing something because this seems like too obvious of a solution to saving 6 to 8K, so why wouldn't everyone do this? I'm nervous to actually take the plunge because the doors are non-returnable. Is there something else I should know?
