Seeking suggestions on best way to transform cabinets stained and sealed with Minwax pickling stain to a dark oak color without sanding? They are veneer over a composite core.

I don’t know of anyway to do this without sanding.

When I redid mine before christmas I had to sand them but it was worth the effort.They are the same type of doors as yours.I put on a couple of coats of good primer and painted them and I am really pleased how they turned out.

Is there a clear coat over the Minwax? If not you might be able to apply dark stain right over it. Might take a few coats though.

I’m responding to my own question here…looks like Rustoleum has come out with a new product that could address this issue. I haven’t tried it yet but here is a link to the information. http://cabinets.rustoleumtransformations.com/press-release.php

It looks like a good system, but I am leery of any product that says its as easy as 1-2-3. I sure wouldn’t mind you being the test bunny for the rest of us. LOL If you end up using it than please let of know how it worked. My cabs are in desperate need for some TLC.
