How to Glaze Cabinets


I wanted to update my cabinets a little. So I decided to glaze them. It was so easy. I used a dark gel stain and just wiped it on. Making sure to get in all the grooves. Then I waited a bit and wiped it off.

    Did you have to sand or prep before putting on glaze ? What kind of glAze ? Did you seal it w/something afterwards ? Looks great !

    Do you have any idea what to do with dark stained kitchen cabinets that not been stained very well to being with? Will a glaze help and if so, what color?

    Where your cabinets already finished or did you sand them down?

    I would like to try the opposite for this glazing because I have the dark wood cabinets and am thinking of painting them white. So before actually painting if there was some way to make them lighter, I may change my mind about doing all the work of painting. Thanks.
