Calling my Fellow Gel Stainers....
Regarding the ends of the cabinets that have the "fake" wood. Probably just a piece of faux woodgrain on essentially paper/plastic.....Can I gel stain that? Did you? How?
Do I need to prime it first? And then just accept the fact that you don't see grain (real or fake) on the ends.
I just did the vanity in my hall bath and we were able to put cut a piece of oak plywood to go over top and then stain that. However in my master bathroom, there is a tall cabinet at the end with way too many cuts, corners, etc that fitting a piece of plywood isn't a great option.
So, anybody? I need advice because this last piece of orangey oak has got to go!
