HOW DO WE REMOVE THE FINISH AND THEN WHAT DO WE DO TO HAVE THE NEW PAINT ADHERE TO THE CABINETS?

    I recommend using Rust-o-leum's Cabinet Transformation kit. You can see how I transformed my cabinets with it. I used their dark kit, but they make a light kit also which would be perfect for your situation. http://www.sandandsisal.com/2011/10/painted-cabinets.html

    If you're painting over the original stain, you can do a light sanding, then clean the entire surface with TSP (tri sodium phosphate) & hot water prior to applying a primer then your paint. Remember, light coats, let dry, repeat. I haven't tried the product Kim suggested, but I'm sure I will sometime in the future.
