So if your cabinets look something like this and well, it's not time to replace or reface them yet, then you might want to consider refurbishing them with a combination coating and stain. While it's possible to refinish cabinets with the doors in place, I don't recommend it.
I've always gotten better results by detaching the doors from the cabinets, taking out all the shelves, removing the knobs or handles — then taking off the hinges.
