no. the kraftmaid cabs are covered in melamine. they use a similar process that Schrock cabinets does, i believe is called "thermofoil" no can do at home AFAIK.

beat them with Chains, drag them behind the car for a block or two... or release two 10 year old children on them for exactly one hour..anything more and the cabs will be destroyed beyond repair.

Traves (not a big fan of distressing)

Deciding what finish to use should include repair of dings as you mentioned. Exotic multistepped finish that gets dinged is an experience. Wife distressed a sideboard then I topcoated with WB Varathane for durability. www.spaltedboard.com then FORUMS the BRAGGINGBOARD then scroll down to SIDEBOARD.
