Problem: My stained cabinets look tired.

Solution: Change up your color palette with a coat of paint.

For best results, remove doors and drawers. Paint the cabinet first, using tape and drop cloths to protect counters and floors from accidental spills. Paint door fronts and drawers separately and on a flat surface for a flat finish, or send them to a paint shop and have them sprayed for a finish that looks factory-fresh.

For ideas, see our slideshow of Cabinetry with Color.
