Kitchen Base Cabinets a popular choice for kitchen because the color is very neutral and complements a range of other finishes. However, I am also quite easy and can easily be colored by the subjects that a kitchen is repeatedly exposed to. Even if you clean your cabinet regularly, stains can become obliterated with the time taken away with simple household wood paint. When this happens, lacquering your oak cabinets with a matching gel stain can be the best option. Cover the colored cabinets, drawer faces, and double-layered cabinet doors, wait 48 hours, and install all wood pieces and hardware.
Remove the screws that hold the gaps and drawer fronts with a screwdriver; even removed hardware and set it aside. Put these on top of a large, thick tarp. Line around the edges of the Kitchen Base Cabinets themselves with the painter’s tape to protect the walls and cover counters with more covers or magazine-proofed tape. Clean all of wood with disodium phosphate cleaners. This cleanser removes seals as well as grease, dirt and other muck on the cabinet. Remove excess detergent with wet rags and wipe the entire wood well with towels. Sand cabinet bodies, drawer fronts and doors evenly with 150-grit sandpaper. Remove any remaining sealer and sand all areas; all wood surfaces should appear cloudy. Clean up the area with a store vacuum.
Dip a clean white cloth to chemical de-Glosser. Apply de-Glosser throughout, grind the wood in a generous, and even layer. Let de-greases sit undisturbed for an hour and wipe any excess with another clean white cloth. Apply the oak-colored gel stain to Kitchen Base Cabinets, drawer fronts and doors with a 2-inch white china brush. Paint stain on short, straight lines that move just in one direction. Do not make the layer of color too thick. Only dip the edges of the breast in the stain and use circular motions to melt any defined seams into the stain on the wood. Lightly patch the wood with more clean white cloths to pick up the excess stain so that it does not create the badge marks. Allow the stain to dry for 24 hours.
