An Economical Refinishing Solution
So, you like your kitchen cabinets, the color is fine but they are dull and worn and have the usual wear and tear that years of use have inflicted upon them, but you would like them to look like they were new again without having to remortgage the home.
If the finish on your doors and drawers is basically sound clean them, sand the old finish lightly, touch-up any worn spots, scratches, etc., spray an adhesion coat of shellac on them and then coat them with two coats of clear Ultrastar, polyurethane acrylic finish by M.L. Campbell.
The same thing can be done to the cabinet frames if they need it and you have a brand new looking kitchen for a fraction of the price.
So the doors and drawers have seen a lot of wear and tear, finish is off or sticky around the handles or top or bottom edges of the doors, or bubbly and gooey over the stove and oven, obviously they need to be stripped and refinished, but the frames don't need to be stripped they are OK or maybe they just need to be stripped around the sink area or just some of the doors need to be stripped, how can it all possibly match in color if only parts are stripped? Matching colors is one of the most difficult things to do in refinishing. Some people have a good eye and feel for color matching, other people are color blind.
By stripping part or none of the cabinets a
lot of time, labor and expense can be saved and same result can be achieved.
