Painting cabinets in manufactured house


I have seen posts on painting OVER the wood looking paper covering on manufactured house cabinets but what about actually removing the paper and sealing the fake wood and painting over that? Some of the paper has already peeled off exposing the particle board cabinets. Can I remove what is left of the paper and use something to waterproof the particle board and then paint them?

That is really making a silk purse out of a sows ear- as they say, but yes.
I would clean them up, prime with shellac based BIN- spackle to smooth- reprime ( could be a good waterborne primer now) and then finish.
They will not be great- and a bit of work- but may be an improvement on the cheap.

Not going to happen. It will look like poop, and as soon as the paint hits the partical board it will start to fall apart.
If you key word cabint doors on the net there's hundreds of companys that sell just the doors and draw fronts.

I agree, Joe. Particle board comes in various degrees of density and the paper-covered ones are usually the cheapest. Remove the doors and clean the cabinets thoroughly and rinse them. Use an acrylic bonding primer. Buy new doors. OR, tear them out and buy new cabinets at a box store. The old cabinets can be a money-pit and time-waster.
