So we move into our new house this weekend and my wife says "Gee. I didn't remember the kitchen cabinets being that light of a stain color".

The cabinets are really nice. They are arranged in the kitchen well and they are in very good condition. However, my wife would like them even better if they were a darker stain. I know that cabinets can be "resurfaced" by replacing the doors and adding a laminate to the frames, but how about restaining? I know that this must be possible, but I don't know any companies in Raleigh that provide this service.

Has anyone ever done this before, and if so did you do it yourself or hire someone to do it?

Don't you hate it when you post a question and nobody answers, but then you look as see some silly post about food that people miss and it has 10 pages of responses?

Default Cabinet Resurfacing

I think if the cabinets are wood, you could easily remove the doors and hardware, sand them lightly and then apply a coat or two of stain - just like you would with a piece of furniture. If they are a veneer, then I think you're probably stuck with having to have a professional "refacing" done. I've met several companies that do this, but have not used any myself. If you can wait, you might want to take in the Southern Living Ideal Home Show at the state fairgrounds in the fall. There will be literally hundreds of home improvement specialists there with samples of their work and info on pricing, etc. Good luck.

I used to to build custom kitchen cabinets. What you are asking to do is $$$$. If there solid wood Pm me and I will tell you what you need to do , to do it yourself. It's not hard but don't think your going to finish it in a day, even on a small kitchen.
