Default Rear drum to disc brake conversion

Hi everyone, I have a Gen5 4 cylinder camry and I'm looking to convert my rear drums to disc brakes and possibly beefing up my front brakes also. Although it's only a 4 cylinder the stock brakes feel like they're lacking in stopping power. I'm wondering if anyone has already tried this and suggestions for good quality kits and cost. My car is pretty much bone stock except for the new ceramic pads I installed last weekend, and I've never done any major modifications to a car before so this is a first for me. My friend tells me it's a relatively easy project, about a day's work, so I'm just looking for additional advice before I potentially butcher my car. Any suggestionsare appreciated, thanks!
