The success (or failure) of your project will depend on what kind of wood you’re working with; how it was originally stained and finished; what “touch ups”have been done over the years, and what’s been used to clean them during their lifetime.

Your dye isn’t going to work on your cabinets in the same manner it would work on raw wood. You’re also faced with how you plan to clean and prep the cabinets before you start applying the dye. I recommend experimenting on the inside of a door. Go thru your entire cleaning/prep plan; apply your dye and finishes and see if you like the results before you start on the visible parts.
