Pacific Dream: yes, I realize that. But I don’t want to paint these cherrywood cabinets as they are great looking cabinets. Also, the kitchen is open to the den and dining room, both of which have extensive built-ins, all of which are cherrywood. While I love painted cabinets too, it would be a sin to paint all this cherrywood. We have decided to go ahead and refinish cabinets.

Lori,

You are very brave! Removing the finish and stain will be a huge job. Good Luck!

We don’t intend to do it ourselves. Hiring a professional to do it.
