Cabinet finish wearing off

There are places where water has gotten on the cabinet doors and removed the finish. Does anyone have any suggestions to "re-cover" the worn down places, short of having them all redone?

That completely depends on what wood and finish you have. I have the Tuscan maple finish on the cabinets, and found that the General Finishes maple stain on maple matches pretty well. And a General Finishes water based clear polyurethane finish. Both were bought at Rockler, who helped me match the stain and finish.

But if you have cherry or something else, that doesn't help you at all. I have heard others say that Home Depot was able to match finishes.

Jerry:

If you can get the color to look good, Varathane makes a water-based Diamond finish that will re-seal it. Water-based is harder and more durable. Easier to work with, too. I bought mine at Home Dumpy.

For evening out finishes (color), "restorer" usually works well. Then seal with the Varathane.
