Kitchen Cabinets

Hello to all of you do-it-yourselfers! I live in a house built in 1929. I have redone almost all of the rooms- more than once! I'm not afraid to try anything.
We have beautiful molding and 9 ft. ceilings. The kitchen cabinets are probably at least 40 years old- and built all the way to the ceiling. They have been painted one too many times. I don't know what to do next. They really need a new "something" done to them- I prefer the cottage look- I'd love to cut them out and put in glass. I really don't want to go to the trouble of stripping and refinishing- but I just don't know what else to do. Anybody out there have any suggestions? Sure would appreciate your help. Everything I have is mostly antique- so that is the style I am looking for.
Thanks for your help.
Susi

Be sure and use a non-toxic stripper.

Have you considered replacing the doors. New doors can often change the look of cabinets with the least amount of work. You can either make new doors yourself or buy new ones and just install them.

you could call a couple of refinishing shoppes and ask for references
for a "stripping" buisness that uses a "cold" stripper.
then either cut out the middle for glass yourself or have it done.
i did the same for our cabinet doors, using a router mounted to it's table.
did the stripping myself.
