After much debate, I decided to go over the cabinets with Minwax wipe on poly. I have used it before in the past on small wood working projects. I debated long and hard about going over the cabinet doors with it. I pulled out my failed drawer front with the broken screws and wiped on some poly as a test swatch on part of it. I asked all the kids and hubby and the the winner was the part with the poly.
Super sexy shot of my hand.
I had to take off all the knobs. AGAIN. It was easier than I thought wiping everything down with the poly. It only took a few mintues. Its almost impossible to photograph the difference. It is subtle differenc but it does give the doors a polished more professional look. I also think they will handle spills better with the coat of poly.
