    I am going to talk to that cabinet shop to price out the doors exactly and see if they will do just the finishing if I get new doors to them.


    3- build new doors and contract out the finishing
    4- contract out both building and finishing a new set of doors.
    I missed that bit about you owning the condo. My bad, as they say.
    I think talking to the cab shop would be a good move as you aren't set up for stripping/refinishing. You can buy doors pretty inexpensively these days, there are plenty of suppliers. Maybe the cab shop can get them for you. Options 3 & 4 sound good.
    Target does not make the shading lacquer, you would have to get the sealer, the dyes and then make your own.
    Good luck.....................Paul

      IMHO Option I would

      #1 would be to give the cabinets a coat of paint.

      #2. I would build the new doors, get a stain to closely match the color.

        I would agree with those that suggested new doors but I would order them from someone that manufactures doors. For a flat panel maple door I pay $16.35 a sq ft and that door arrives ready to finish. I made my own doors for the first 4 years and ignored all those naysayers that said I was wasting my time. When I got behind and thought I would try an order and I have never looked back.I too believe it is probably a shaded lacquer but any of the commercial places suggested should be able to come up with stain that would match.

          One thing that heavily pushes me towards just ordering the whole thing is for tax purposes as I can claim the expenses but not my own labor.
