    Thank you! If I had just taken a weekend to do them, it would have been completely do-able to get the stain done in a weekend, and then the poly on another day. it's tedious, but really the work was very little for what the end result is!

    What kind of stain did you use to darken them? How did you prep the cabinet before you stained them?

    Hi Kelly! I used Gel Stain by General Finishes in Java. I just did light sanding to prep - check out the full tutorial here:

    I like the crisp clean look of your kitchen. Any ideas on painting metal cabinets. Mine are off white and I would like to change the color/shade to brighten the dark kitchen. Only have one widow and half is taken up with a window air conditioner.
