The fronts of my old Faktum kitchen needed to be replaced. Since this kitchen line is no longer supported, I started doing odd jobs myself. I chose a combination of birch plywood and mdf in neomint.

Replace fronts with plywood and MDF

I ordered all panels from in the correct dimensions and done all the finishing myself. I rounded corners with an edge cutter, milled the black handles in the MDF, drilled holes for the hinges and then primed and painted them. At the plywood panels I mitered a corner to act as a handle. I painted these panels with transparent matt lacquer. Kitchen wall still needs to be tiled and skirting boards still have to be done.
