I remembered that I had a can of Restore It Furniture rehab liquid that might help cover up some of the wear. Even though the cabinets are honey colored, and the Restore It I had is walnut, I used it anyway. Well, this stuff is wonderful. It covered all the blemishes, gave a very clean look to the cabinets and didn't darken them over one shade. They look like new! I plan to get new hardware for this room.
I hung the tiers I found at Good Will in the laundry and mud rooms, and it is soooooo much brighter and cleaner in here. Maybe someday I'll get up the nerve to do something different, but this will help anyway.
I don't have a before picture showing the spots that were on the cabinets, but this is how the room looks now.
Tiers in mud room and laundry room, and a new rug for the laundry room.
