Different colour IKEA doors

Postby gattiman » Mon Apr 25, 2011 3:38 pm

Hi Guys,
Hope you can help.
I have installed a IKEA kitchen and have recently bought some new cabinets to match, but the colour does not match and IKEA will not exchange as I cant find my original receipt.
What I would like to know is what sort of paint could I use to get an even colour and finish. The present colour is white (off white really) and the cabinet range is STET.
I have thought of using a car paint, but they are mostly gloss and the finish I have is on the eggshell side of matt. I have tried MSP (multi surface paint) on a damaged door and it is awful, not the nice smooth finish of the original.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I would just leave it as is mate, No paint will take properly to the type of surface the doors are made of.
