You offered a great DIY article on this. My only question is how to do the frames that are attached to the wall. Do they require the same process? If I took my doors and hinges off, I’d still have the skeleton of the cabinet. How to refinish this part without dusting out my entire house? Thanks.

The cabinet frames or boxes are refinished by hand. The same basic process is used.

I prefer the cabinets to be emptied before the washing and sanding. Usually just a light hand sanding with a sanding sponge is enough then a good wipe down with a liquid sander/deglosser, I like Paso. The staining and finishing is all done with a brush.
