Um.... I have stripped furniture, chairs, vanities, tables. It's hard work! It's messy work! You need good rubber gloves(dishwashing ones will do) cause the stuff will burn your skin. Use a semi-paste or gell product that will stick to the wood and not run off. It will take a day or two to do it cause more than likely you will have to restain the cabinets. You can go over the existing ones with a stain drenched cloth and it will hide light scratches very well. Thats an old trick that antique stores use to pretty up beat-up furniture. You can put new fronts on them, but you are going to pay some bucks for that and thats a good half to all day job in its own right. And good luck on matching the color.
