Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

Question:

I was going to redo my kitchen (tear everything out) when I saw a DIY show about veneer. Really nothing wrong with my cabinets except they are too dark. I would like to veneer with birch.

I will be doing this project solo. I was going to buy several large sheets so I’d have no seams. Or should I order in manageable sheets and “lightly” sand any seams. I have kinda like a breakfast bar with the back sides of the cabinets showing. Two 4′ x 10′ sheets would cover both backs with no seams, but how hard is it to handle over my head??

Answer:


It would be far too difficult to handle such a large piece with just one person. One thing that might make it easier would be to use a pressure sensitive veneer. As to seams, that is just part of it and with careful planning you can eliminate allot of visual issues.
