Hi, We want to put a dark stain on our cupboards, they are maple natural in color, would it be a lot of work? VLW

They would have to be sanded down to bare wood for a stain to be able to soak in. And would take at least a week if you stayed on it full time depending on how many cabinets you have it may take longer.
Far faster and less mess to order all new doors and drawer fronts and just work on the boxes.
