We just bought our first house. We love the kitchen layout and don't want to change anything except for the awful, dark, grey-brown veneer cabinets that were built on site and installed in 1949. They are solid, no cracks or buckling or water damage. Someone suggested refacing, but I hate to waste the fabulous solid wood that is sitting under the dark veneer. Is there any way to peel off the veneer? It is already peeling away from the wood underneath in some places. If I can get rid of the veneer I would whitewash the cabinets.
Would it be easier to just sand them and paint over the veneers? Either way we want white cabinets or a whitewash.
Thank you for any advice!
