HELP! Staining Project gone Bad!

melh3December 6, 2013

Trying to restain bookcases in my living room which connect to my kitchen cabinets that I was goin to do also but the bookcases aren't looking so good and now I wished I had listen to my husband. Using GF gel stain, mixing dark walnut and Georgian cherry together. Read on internet where people were using this product without sanding first and that's what I tried and now I have bookcases that are really blotchy looking black in some areas. Any help of how I can fix this would be greatly appreciated!!!

After my first coat of GF gel stain, I, too freaked out because it was really blotchy. After the second coat it looked nice. i even used the gel stain on melamine without primer. Just make sure, the first coat is properly dry before trying coat two. Mine started sliding around and coming off because it wasn't dry enough. So far, the vanity has held up really well.
