Kitchen cabinet paint help
The cabinets are from late 70's, they are particle board with plastic surround. Their faces were paper with a dark wood grain.While painting the house I decided to paint the cabinets and surrounding support areas. I used a airless sprayer, but it did not go on uniformly and looks bad. In addition there are a couple runs ect. Is there anything that can be done or should I look at replacement cabinets? It would be a lot of area to try to sand even if I did I'd be back trying paint them once again.

New cabinets if you can afford it, otherwise start sanding. You will have to be careful not to sand through the plastic.
I had excellent results using spray paint on similar construction.

Sometimes this can be removed with a hair dryer and replaced.
