    If frame is good, add screen wire. A decorate piece you can probably get at home depot, or hobby lobby. Otherwise not sure unless you cut a new frame

    A few questions - as you haven't given us much to go on. I am assuming you mean kitchen cabinet doors - or do you mean large entry doors? How deep are the dents, and whereabouts on the door are they? If cabinets, what finish - paint, wood, etc - is on your other.doors?

    A picture would help. not sure if you are talking about cabinet doors or reg. doors.

    Regular ol' "Bondo" for repairing dents, etc. on autos can work well. Follow instructions. You'll have to sand and paint, though, so if that's not an option, you might want to look at other alternatives.

    Not much information! Are they flat, textured, fake woodgrain, colored?! Do you plan to paint or just l left alone?! Bondo would definitely work as dicksiedael suggests. Vinyl spackling would also work. Nothing would really conceal the repair where it would not be visible.

    Not much you can do to fix laminate but buy paint...plus primer, chose a color you like.... fill in the dints with carpenter's helper first, sand and paint.

    Thank You Ginny. I'm going to maybe try wood filler then sand. I'm going to go to Lowes to see if they can help. I'll let know I will definitely let this site know the end result I just found this site and I think it's awesome! I'm telling all my friends about this site

    At http://bondo.com/tips#Q4mEZpEqL1dlMdCH.97 you can find out all the different types of bondo and what to use with the products. I learned this researching another Hometalk question's answers.
