If your kitchen has those old golden oak cabinets and you are just tired of them…you don’t have to replace them, you can stain them. Now to stain them you don’t have strip them to get that new look. Here is how.
Sand down the cabinet, going with the grain of the wood (about 150 grit). Then wash the cabinet down with TSP and allow it to dry. Now apply sealer that is like a glue that will hold the stain. Allow the sealer to dry even though it will still be tacky. Apply a gel stain with a 2” brush and continue to get the desired look. This process will really only work when going from a light to a dark color. Applying a protective finish is the last part of the project.
