Can I refinish my IKEA kitchen cabinets with epoxy resin?
Hi! I am hoping someone can help. I have the "old" Akurum Ikea Cabinets with super glossy white Abstrakt doors. I love the doors but after 17 years the film which is super shiny is coming off and bubbling but the cabinet underneath is still white, even but not nearly as shiny. I would like to have that super glossy look - mirror finish, lacquer finish, glass finish whatever your call it. I am calling around about someone to refinish it or repaint it but I am not having much luck. I even called some autopaint places. One said they would do it for $5000 plus (the kitchen is super small and I could get new cabients including bases installed for less than that. Does anyone have a contact in Edmonton? I do have a crazy idea - I have only 18 doors including six drawers so yes, this is a small kitchen. What about epoxy resin? It gives a glossy mirror finish? It self levels so I don't need a sprayer. If I used the Art Resin stuff I think I Could do it for about six hundred dollars? It will be a pain to remove the drips but probably better than using vinyl wrap/contact paper like where I think it would be hard to keep the bubbles out plus I am not sure you can get that glossy of a look? But if you know of something that would work - dc fix? let me know. I am willing to pay to have it painted or if it isn't hard diy.
