These cabinets are the ones with light laminate with wood trim built in handles. We took a drawer in to Lowes and had some paint matched to the laminate in satin finish. We left the cabinets and drawers in place for this project. We sanded, taped off, and painted the wood trim with three coats of the matching paint. Then we added the knobs and pulls. This was a one day project that came in under $50 for the paint and pulls. We bought the pulls on Ebay from a seller who offers free shipping for 25 or more pieces. Outside of this project, we added cabinet magnets to keep the doors closed, which is also inexpensive with high-yielding results.
