This weekend I worked on refinishing my kitchen cabinets. I started by taking off all the doors and re-veneered damaged cause over the years by my dogs and kids. Next lightly sanded all the doors, drawers and bases. Once done with the sanding I moved on to priming them. After the priming dried I sanded and painted. I was able to salvage the old hinges and handles by dipping them into an acetone bath.
