One way to save your cabinets is to strip and restain. We can do this, but a safer and more trendy look can be done with gel stains, especially the darker ones which allow for the hiding of chips, deep scratches, dog chews, etc. They are also easy for you to touch up should something happen such as adding a new oven, etc. We have a process which features very good sanding for adherence. The products used are extraordinarily strong, with properties good for adherence and durability.
