PAINTING CABINETS WITH GEL STAIN & A REMODEL OF RUEBEN'S MASTER BATH

PAINTNG CABINETS WITH GEL STAIN & A REMODEL OF RUEBEN'S MASTER BATH

A few years ago, Carrie and Rueben asked me to paint their pickled oak wood guest bath and powder room cabinets to a darker stained finish.  Rueben liked the finish so much that he asked me to do the same technique on his cabinets in his master bath.  Recently, he was remodeling his master bath with new tile, flooring, glass shower enclosure and new granite counter tops.  He thought the stained cabinets would be the finishing touch to his new decor.
All of the colors blend so well and look so nice.  Everything looks "finer", now.
The large mirror did not have a frame, so he had someone make one.  All of that mitering is not easy.  At least, not easy for me!
New frame pieces.  Look at that mitering job.
I can't get over how well the miters match.
Picture of pickled oak cabinets "before".  And, new mirror frame.
I used a gel stain for the cabinet finish.
Gel stains can be used on an already painted or sealed surface.
Thank you, Rueben!
