Yellowing Paint on Base Cabinets

Our wood base cabinets are original and approximately 13 years old. The doors and drawers are all bright white because they have a thin veneer that looks like wood, but is not wood. So, the cabinets look really bad. How do I get the yellowing stain out of the paint? I don't want to pay $800 to have the cabinets repainted.

Try using Kilz, that should keep the yellowing from coming through. Then repaint with whatever color you want the moulding to be, a white to match the doors.

Once paint has discoloured, there is no way to "get the yellow" out of it. You have to repaint. The previous poster has good advice for a seal coat to keep this from happening in the future.


Another option would be to leave the white parts alone and repaint the yellowed areas with a contrasting colour, something that matches your colour scheme.
