Proper organization goes a long way to minimizing time wasted or big mistakes in a project like resurfacing kitchen cabinets. You want to keep everything well organized in one place. Make sure that you do this with every single bit of hardware that you plan to use again.
In addition, you want to organize the steps of the project. It's easy to get intimidated by a big job like resurfacing kitchen cabinets, but like anything, it is a little easier to manage if you keep things in perspective.
Perspective is achieved by a system of organization that keeps you from losing track of essential pieces and wasting time trying to hunt them down. This is especially important if you plan to re-use hardware, and it can get tricky because you have to soak the hardware in hot soapy water. One possible solution to this is using a variety of different size bowls and tubs for the different hardware and developing a meticulous system.
Bigger pieces, like the cabinet doors, can be labeled, and you can label the cabinet interior in the place each door needs to be re-attached as well. You should also keep good track of your tools - any DIY homeowner knows how much time can be lost trying to hunt down that hammer you "just saw a minute ago."
Resurfacing kitchen cabinets can be a pain-free event, but it's funny how the smallest things can change that. So keep everything laid out just like you need it, and before you know it you'll have a finished job you can be proud of.
