Kitchen Cabinet redo

Cheap redo on a rental house.
My kitchen cabinets in my rental... The cabinet in my rental look horrible. I don't want to invest in a lot of money since it's a rental so I set out to find a cheap redo. I stripped the old finish to find beautiful stained wood. I took the hardware off and my husband took them to work and sandblasted the old finish off then I spray painted them. I used Briwax to seal them instead of putting money into varnish since I don't own the house. I'm happy with the results.

    I used a stripping gel called Citristrip. (Got at Home Depot & Lowes) It took a lot but I had 21 cabnets. Then I rinsed them down once they dried I sanded them lightly with a fine grain sand paper. Sealed them with a tinted Briwax (I ordered online can't remember where) but with the Briwax it will have to be resealed once a year. I dried any water off of them asap not to cause water marks. So you may want to consider poly seal. The handle were sandblasted then given a new coat of paint but I guess they could have been sanded by hand. If it hadn't been a rental house I probably would have bought new hardware instead of painting.

    Oh I took the doors off numbered them to be sure I put them back in the same spot. I also spray painted the hinges too.
