How to replace cabinet pulls from faux cabinet panels

Posted by npgl1971 (My Page) on

So we're trying to do a small project refreshing our kitchen and we wanted to replace the existing cabinet pulls from our kitchen cabinets. Turns out we didn't realize that the faux cabinet panels under the peninsula countertop and on the sides of our old oven are glued on WITH the cabinet pulls screwed on to them. There is no way to unscrew these cabinet pulls from anywhere so how do we replace them other than literally sawing of the faux panel and then unscrewing the handle and putting the new ones in?

That's a toughie!
Short of a saws-all (reciprocating saw), which would damage a lot, I think, I'd tape everything off and spray paint them to match your new hardware.

It's fine to have different hardware different places. (See budzillion pictures on this board) I think the finish is what would tie them together.
