I have a 30-50 year old ranch house that I have worked on and decorated for almost 10 years, one thing I know for certain is that one resident from the 1960's or 1970's was a great wood worker;right now my concern is my kitchen cabinets.
My kitchen is small so I need color to brighten it. I was going to paint my cabinets until I was told they are hand-made from hardwood (oak?) from the 60's or 70's.
I now see the beautiful wood grain on my cabinets; I need help on sanding them, re-staining , etc....I want to lighten the stain (if possible) I don't want to paint them.
My cabinets have never been painted and I think they were only stained once.
