    Hi All,

    The vinyl wrap on the doors and drawers of the ensuite vanity in my Berkeley IP is stuffed. Can the doors be somehow rewrapped or recoated? The rest of the vanity is fine so surely it's not economical to replace the whole vanity once plumbing and delivery costs are factored in?

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Measure them up and see if there a standard size (incl hinge) to replace from Bunnings, Masters, Ikea etc.
    Doesn't have to be wrap, get whatever's available that will suit.

    Be cheaper to do that than pay labour to strip & re-apply.

    If not and you're handy you could make your own replacements up with marine ply (better life than melamine & don't have to iron edges), add some trim if you don't want a plain look.

    Can't rewrap vinyl doors - it's a great product idea but fails spectacularly due to the glue.

    Get out your sander and give the doors a quick sand to smooth off the glue. Then hit it with some spray paint.

    Thanks for the ideas, guys. My wife has been using that Rust-oleum spray paint on some of our old pot plants lately and they've been coming up a treat, might give something like that a go. Cheers.
