Kitchen Cabinets wrong color

My kitchen cabinets were first painted with Kilz. Later they were painted with Sherwin Williams 6113 - Interactive Cream which is a light tan color. This color was chosen by a decorator and me to blend with granite called Copper Canyon and a light golden yellow with white swirls onyx backsplash. My cabinets dried and look peach or have a pink hew. I cannot afford to have them painted again. What can I do to make them have a golden hue (varnish on top of oil base paint, colored wax or golden glaze)? I AM DESPERATE. PLEASE HELP.

Easiest thing to do is repaint them yourself.

Glazing or varnishing them will probably cost as much as repainting. Are these freshly painted? If latex, the color may a change a bit as it cures and this takes about 30 days.
