From Plastic to Fantastic! DIY Re-facing.

I wanted to cut costs on what a company would charge me to re-face my foyer bathroom. I took off the laminate compressed wood doors and had new unfinished maple doors cut in the size I wanted. I primed them with multipurpose Sherwin Williams primer and painted them with Sherwin Williams Proclassic extra white SW7006 paint. The doors I ordered through Lowe's and they came with the hinges and hardware. They were $45 total, plus the paint $15. Total project $60 and time and patience. (Lowe's no longer does this service but there are other cabinet makers that can make the doors for you at low prices.) I used a 2 1/2 in brush to paint the doors and did 2 coats of paint after the primer to get a smooth finish. I will post after fotos once I complete the job.
