I had this done in my childhood home right after I bought it. Not being able to afford new cabinetry, I had the existing cabinets (that were in good condition, but needed a face lift) restained and added new hardware. It cost me between $500-600 and was money well spent as opposed to new cabinetry. The staining matches a hand built china cabinet from 50 years ago. Somewhere down the line, I'd like to add organizational stuff to the drawers and cabinets.
Life is all about a$$; you're either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, behaving like one, or you live with one.
