Fixing peeling veneer on kitchen cabinets.

Hi,

I am getting ready to paint my kitchen cabinets and the sides are peeling slightly. I think the sides are wood veneer. Any tips on how to repair?

Thanks!

Kind of looks like a photographic finish (similar to contact paper) over particle board. About all you could do is sand it down flat and glue on another veneer.

So I will cautiously state, that's like being a little bit pregnant!

As XS stated, cheaper cabinets have a thin, very thin, overlay/contact paper wood grain looking material. I have some of these in the garage, and due to heat out there they are peeling, badly.

Attempting to paint them is going to present a problem as the contact paper cant be removed, there is just partial board underneath which probably is not going to look so great!

Might be replacement time!

You could use a little bit of filler, sand it down, prime and paint. Not ideal but will work.

Thanks all. Very helpful. I'm gonna try to sand down and prime/paint. Unfortunately replacement isn't an option right now.

Expect the sanded edge to suck up the primer, might need 2 coats of primer.
