I am buying a historic house that has old barn wood cabinets. They were installed within the last 10 years, so they aren't the original cabinets. However I still want to preserve them, my wife wants new cabinets. She is giving me the chance to finish them, if she likes them they get to stay.
She doesn't like the old grey look, so I'm going to try to stain them. I'd like to get the grey color out, but I don't want to take the cabinets outside to use wood bleach or any other chemical. Is there anything I can use which would be safe indoors, that would taket he grey color out and prepare the cabinets for staining?
I have a picture of the cabinets if anyone is interested.
If I can get them looking good to her, I'm going to tear that carpet out, and install a nice light countertop and it should be looking good.
