My old house in downtown Flagstaff, Az. has painted dark metal cabinets. Is cabinet refacing possible with metal? I'd like to order new metal cabinet doors and repaint the cabinet cases. If the costs are similar, I'll instead scrap the cabinets and order assemble-yourself cabinets from Home Depot, though I'm concerned about cabinet installation. Which way is most cost-effective?
I don't like the metal European kitchen cabinets in our Dover, Delaware, home we purchased, even though they're of excellent quality. As a cabinet refacing idea, I'd like to paint the metal cases and replace the metal doors with wood ones. Are the cabinets strong enough for the weight of wood doors?
