I recently received advice from the kind gentleman from ICI paints in Brockville. I followed his instruction and the project turned out perfectly.
I stripped cupboards of extra melamine decorative pieces (the cupboards are all melamine).
Washed the cupboards thoroughly
Sanded extra glue off with a demel tool
Filled in old holes with normal mud
Primed with Bulls Eye primers (multi surface)
Pained with New CIL paint for melamine cupboards (new product!)
Everything looks perfect ? and 1 million times better!
Total the new hardware and paint cost about $200 (maybe a little less) .. much more cost effective than replacing the cabinet door which I estimated to be $99/each and i had 30 doors!
Thanks ICI Paints!!
