The most important thing to remember is that the cabinets have a sealer (polyurethane, varnish, etc) that acts like a clear wall between the actual stained wood and the outside world.  This coat has to be eliminated in order to change the stained wood to a darker color or shade.

 

Now, I realize that this is a lot of work and you may not have the amount of time to pursue such a project...

 

So here are a couple of alternative solutions:

 

RUST-OLEUM Transformations  Kit Cabinet Wood Refinishing System.

This kit applies a glaze coat over the top of existing cabinets that can be darker than the existing color.  A top coat of clear protective coating is then applied as a final step.

 

RUST-OLEUM Transformations 9-Piece Dark Color Cabinet Kit.

This is a kit that allows you to apply a base coat to your existing cabinets and add a glaze and a top coat .  This is our most popular solution and one of our largest threads on the community.
