    Thank you Gail. :) It is actually a great product called PolyShades which is a stain & poly in one. I used a dark shade called Espresso but you can still see the wood grain in the wood. I just love that! (might be hard to tell from the picture but it is there!)

    This is very interesting and looks awesome. Have you ever done this over damaged wood where a piece was not the same colour, did the two pieces stain differently, like in my kitchen cupboards that have to have some veneer replaced before doing anything else. I was going to paint white but really want dark, almost black. They are that orange right now. What is your opinion? :)

      Cuz I hate sanding too, and your way sounded great. I guess I will just have to go back to plan A. I guess I could paint one cupboard dark and look at it for a few days to see if I like it, if not, prime with a few coats and go on to white. I will give it some thought. Thanks for the good info though.
