I had a question about repairing the boards and side boards of kitchen cabinetry. I am not actually wanting to fix the actual cabinets, but the sides of the cabinets are made with some type of wood and then it looks like they pressed with a faux wood grain veneer or contact paper. On another cabinet (not shown), the faux wood grain paper/veneer or whatever you want to call it, has started to chip off. I think it’s either cause of old-age, humidity, moisture, etc. Since it’s just a faux wood grain finish on top of a cheap wood, what is the best way to repair it? I thought of a few options which range from a cover up to a complete replacement: -try to match a wood filler crayon or marker and just cover up the missing portions. This would be a quick fix. -find a matching tape or contact paper and just cover up the relevant portions -find a paint that would cover up the portions -find a contact paper roll or veneer finish and completely cut the paper and paste it onto the side of the cabinetry.
I really want to stay away from a replacement and would rather just find a quick fix or cover up. From your experience and insight, what do you think would be the best? What color do you think would match these faux grains? picture of wood grain on side of cabinet
