Is cabinet refacing REALLY a do-it-yourself project for 2 intelligent, mildly skilled working adults? Or, should we **** it up and pay a professional?

It really depends on the finish you are planning to apply and how patient you are.

How long can you live without cabinet doors? Depending on the size of your kitchen, It could take a bit of time and sweat to all the doors and cabinet face frames.

If you are restaining, stripping and preparation for the new finish will take the most time. You'll probably want to do all of the doors at them same time to be consistent with paint or stain color. Repainting is easier as you'll probably just need to "rough" the surface for the new paint, clean the dust off them and apply the new paint treatment and then a surface sealant (spray cans).

Good luck
