GF gel stain success (before: oak / after: rich chocolate)
I used 2 coats of General Finishes java stain on the inside of some of our old oak kitchen cabinets and ended up disappointed that the color turned out nearly black. I decided to try a coat of Brown Mahogany over it and low and behold, it worked! I obtained the rich chocolate color I was going for Ã¯Â¿Â½ I donÃ¯Â¿Â½t even think I need to do another coat. The cabinets are still dark of course, but not black. Just beautifully warm and dark.
I didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t think to take before and after pics, but will do so after I stain the next set of cabinets. I just couldnÃ¯Â¿Â½t wait to share how versatile the gel stain is.
