Thanks guys, as I recall, I ended up brushing this one because the client wanted a low sheen finish, almost to resemble an oil – like the new oak floor in the room (I put that down too). I was back in that house last week and those units still look great.
Apparently, their young daughter was cursing me though, because she put the Muppets movie DVD on the very top of one of the units and it slipped down the gap between the wall. Gone forever, never to be seen again. Apparently, the old chewing-gum-on-a-cane trick didn’t work either

Doing the best I can with what I've got
