    You could try just fixing the scratches with touch up paint. It won't be perfect, and you might consider refinishing them at some point. But, it will camouflage the scratch. I would clean it well, and try a fine point brush to fill it in. There are many shades of white, so it may be tricky unless you know the original paint used. There are also crayons and markers for fixing scratches, depending on what you are comfortable using. Good luck and stay safe!

    Hi Tina. The only way to get rid of those scratches is to sand them down. Whether you sand with a palm sander or by hand, start with 80 grit sandpaper, then change to 220 grit, and then finally with 400 grit. This will give you a smooth surface. Next clean them really well. Go over them a couple times to remove all the sanding dust. Lastly comes prime and paint. Good luck Tina. I'm hoping all is well with you.

    Hello I have used Rustoleum epoxy touch up on mine. It come in a nail polish type bottle with applicator. A few dollars at Walmart or home improvement center.

  • You can you a touch up paint, but the color is always hard to match believe it or not there are lots of whites. And the colours changes over time. If the touch up is obvious you will need to sand it and start again.

    Tina: hopefully you have some leftover paint. Simply get a good, very small brush from Michaels or a cart store and touch them up.

  • Sanding and repainting is the only way to get them looking new again. As stated above, I would repaint them all so the paint is uniform. If however, they are spot scratches and you know the paint you used, you could use a paint pen to correct the spots. We did it. Works great.

    Hi, You will have to wash them well and use a good primer/sealer first. Then repaint with a good enamel paint.

    Take your door to Sherwin Williams or any other paint department and have them color match. You will then be able to touch up the cabinets.
