Hi, Get spray painting done for kitchen furniture. Or get new wooden sheet of you favorite color and glue it on the surface of the furniture.

If you're going to paint then don't forget to clean and coat them with a pigmented shellac primer first. They can then be coated with latex, oil base or waterborne enamel.

You can also try kitchen refacing as an affordable alternative to new cabinets. Prices range from $1500 to $3500 depending on size of kitchen and options chosen. Visit for more information.
