In our 99 Mirada, DW did not like the gold handles and trims. Being in New Zealand (metric) it was going to cost around $4 - $6 per handle to change the 28 handles, two knobs and assorted gold light trims. Took them all off and they are currently being powder coated for around $50 tops, with a satin chrome finish. I am getting the light trims, towel rails and fridge trays done for the same price. Will post picks when they come back from the powder coating this week.

I so far have just done the bottom cabinets. I lightly sanded them and went over them with Minwax stain. This product is a stain and topcoat in one application. I am sure there are other brands as well. It seems to be standing up quite well so far. Our cabinets were a medium oak color so the difference is not that noticeable. I think if you sanded them enough just to get the shinney coat off and the re coat it should work. I would try the inside of a door first until you get the finish you want. I know what you mean about the washed oak, I don't care for that as well. Good luck, it sounds like your on the road to having things the way you want.

After being married 30 years come April 19 I don't know how I made the right choice at age 28. Heck she even decided that we ought to get a 06 Rubicon to pull behind our Monaco, and she didn't gripe a bit when I bought 5 Cushman in the last year but she did buy herself a hammerless Smith, did I say I picked the right one already ???????????
