Unfinished oak cabinets- please help!
I've purchased some unfinished oak cabinets for my downstairs mini-kitchen/bar area. I need help with finishing them though. I want a very dark cab, with not much graining. Either a dark chocolate or brown/black shade. I don't want them to look too DIY when I'm done either. Should I be using an opaque stain with a low sheen poly finish? Semi-opaque paint? I really want the final layer to have a nice smooth feel like my semi-custom cabs in my kitcen. Please provide any advice you have to make the best of my low-budget situation.
Thanks in advance!
