How can you fix up 20yr old cabinets with cladding that is peeling?

    I have the same sort of problem. I am going to replace the drawers in a contrasting colour and hope that this looks as though it was a design feature! Claire

    If replacing the doors is just not in the budget then you will need to remove the loose portion and fill the divot then match the color. That would be very difficult to do and it is really difficult to match white. Since you used the word cladding, I assume these doors are plastic laminate over mdf. It might be easier to add a small decorative trim all the way around the doors.

    Gorilla glue under the laminate and hold it down with a clamp until dry.

    Rip it off and paint it.

    I would sand it down, add a wood filler and sand again and prime and paint, but it is going to be hard to match your paint since they are that old???
