Update Your Cabinets With Gel Stain!
Have a house filled with outdated golden oak cabinets? I do! It's time to do something about it, and General Finishes Java Gel Stain was the perfect tool to update my cabinets!
I started in the kids' bathroom. Remove all the hardware, find a shady place to stain (I used my garage), and get to work.
The best thing is, with this product, there's no stripping or sanding- simply apply gel stain directly over your old stain or varnish. Mine had that shiny varnish on them- but all I had to do was wipe them down with soapy water.
Look at the difference! I applied three coats of stain and they look like a whole new set of cabinets!
Metallic silver spray paint helped update the hardware, and I added knobs as well. I love how it turned out!
