    If you have the skills you can. My sister in law decided to put a pickling finish on her cabinets and did so. I', not sure how she learned to do this but probably a step by step manual she bought at a materials supply store like Home Depot or Lowe's.

    what kind of material are they made of? this will have a big effect on how and if you reface them.

    It's very simple really. Just go to a hardware store and ask them to show you which tools you need for cabinet refacing. Then ask someone to show you how to use them. No advice through here will be more useful than actually seeing the tools in action! smile

    are you actually going to reface or just refinish, refacing requires a little more skill and tools. refacing actually applies a new substrate to your existing cabinet face , i.e. maple ,oak or your particular choice, you can purchase materials at your local wood product supplier, they can also give you tips and or training to help you complete your task. just refinishing mostly sand paper and a lot of elbow grease, look for cabinet supplies
