USING A DARK GEL STAIN ON LORI'S FAMILY ROOM CABINETS

USING A DARK GEL STAIN ON LORI'S FAMILY ROOM CABINETS

In Lori's home all of the cabinets use to have a pickled/white washed finish.
 She had me paint some of her cabinets black/distressed.  The black looks amazing with her wood floors and decor.  Then, she asked me to darken her kitchen cabinets just a little bit so they would look distressed.  I used a gel stain on the edges and a little in the middle of the doors. The gel stain really toned down the pickled finish.
Recently she called and wanted me to use gel stain on her family room cabinets.
Even though the cabinets were pickled/white washed, the wood was a little different and the wood soaked up more of the gel stain than in the kitchen.
 I painted on and wiped off with a rag. 
 It looked really, really nice with the brick on the fireplace.  
She is especially happy with the way the new color looks on the mantel.
There are so many different ways to use a gel stain.
This turned out to be a really good one.
Lori is very happy with the final result of her family room cabinets.
