Replacing Leather Covered Cabinets

I bought a house and it has leather covered kitchen cabinets. Have you heard of this and are they easy to replace?

If the doors are the only thing covered in leather you can purchase new doors. Sand the frames and stain or varnish to the color of your choice.

If the doors are a panel covered in leather you can remove the panel from the back after you remove the doors from the frames. You can then replace the panel with clear or frosted glass the same size as the panel.

If the leather is in on the panel you might be able to save the panel after removing the the leather if possible then sand the frames on cabinet, door frames and the panel and stain to your choice.

Also if you want to go old school country you can replace the panel with a sheet of copper that you poke with designs or patterns found on the net to make the cabinets look like an old biscut safe.( you have to be my age to rember granny's safe,)

I have never seen leather kitchen cabinets so these are just some ideas, but I would think that leather in the kitchen would be the worse kind of headache to care for. Good Luck! :)

Is it genuine leather or a vinyl look alike? Regardless, I can see why you'd want to be rid of it! dpool from memphis has the same ideas I would suggest.
