Cecile Lenca asked 7 years ago

I just had kitchen cupboards custom made. However, the cabinets maker did not stain them evenly. I have dark doors and light stained doors and drawers (Cabernet). I want to redo them and have the stain the same even color on all the cabinets. Since they have a lacquer on them I am told I would have to strip them all. Is it possible to sand them and then refinish them? Or, could I possibly bleach the dark ones lighter and them put more lacquer on them? What would be the best way to achieve lightening my new cupboards?
