deep paint chip repair

Today I was an idiot who hit my cabinet door in my garage while parking in. It looks like I completely took off all the paint from that hit as you can see in the pics. I can probably buff out the fender part but what can I do about the chip on the front bumper?

You may be able to touch it up a little.. the only way to get something that big back to new is a respray

Short of a respray your only option to make it look decent would be touchup + wetsand + touchup + wetsand + touchup + wetsand + clear coat + wetsand + buff.
