Well, I stained my island top.
I am so glad I did it.
Just a few pictures for you to see!
This is the top after 1 coat.
And after 2 coats.
I did 4 coats in all and also did 4 coats of the Arm-R-Seal. It turned out a little shinier than I like, but I needed this surface to be very durable.
Just as a reminder, these are the exact products I used. If I had to do it over again, I might get the satin Arm-R-Seal, but I'm still very satisfied with the results.
My cabinets were needing something done with them. They were starting to show wear and replacing them was not in our budget. I love white painted cabinets, but painting usually requires a great deal of sanding. I wasn't interested in doing that. I've done it before. This was a super cost effective way to update my cabinets. I highly recommend trying it if you are wanting to update yours!
