Removing textured finish from kitchen cabinets
Bought a house - the kitchen cabinets are solid and roomy, but the previous owner applied a heavily textured finish that looks hideous. It also feels like 60-grit sand paper. I plan on building new doors and drawer fronts. Anyone have an idea on the best way to remove this textured finish from the face frames?
We want a smooth surface to paint over. I could build new face frames, but I don't think I it's worth the effort to try to remove the existing frames. We are trying to do this with minimal disruption to the kitchen - don't want to remove the cabinets from the walls. Do you think scraping will be sufficient to remove the texture, or will a stripping solution be required? Not sure I like the idea of using a stripping solution on the cabinets while in place in the kitchen, especially with two new babies in the house.
