Our kitchen cabinets are painted with a vinyl laminate paint that is peeling.

Kathleen asked 5 years ago

The wood underneath is a composite type wood. We’ve been told that after it is stripped, it has to be re-painted with a vinyl laminate paint by a professional. Is that true?

This is a rental property and the cabinets are about 7-8 years old. The places where it’s peeling are mostly around the stove, and there is no venting so it may be from the heat. I’m looking for the least expensive way to strip the cabinets and re-paint them, but with the economy the way it is, I’m thinking that I’d like to do it myself, if possible. It’s a big kitchen…but I have some time to do it. What should I use to strip the vinyl, and what can I re-paint with?
