Covenant - Clean the cabinet boxes well to remove any grease and fill any holes or voids. Lightly sand all the surfaces to be covered with veneer. I cover all face frames and boxes with a thin wood veneer. Any larger end panels should be covered with 1/4" veneered panels. The face frame veneer will overlap the edge of the plywood. If done correctly, all the corners will look like mitered solid wood. Of course, if you want to paint the cabinets you don't need the veneer. Just prime and paint the face frames and sides and replace the doors. The insides of the cabinets will not change unless you want to paint them to match the outside. Hope this helps.

I get my veneer from RefaceDepot.com. It comes in 24"x96" adhesive backed sheets. You can get it unfinished or stained and laquered to match the doors they offer. It's not cheap but considering it is finished ready to install it's not too bad. I have had good luck with it.
