Home Update Before and After – Gel Staining Wood

I was able to update my home on a really small budget by gel staining all of our dated wood work a nice, dark java colour!

The kitchen, banister, front door and all the doors and trim were a dated golden oak.  For about $200 I was able to stain everything a nice, rich Java colour.  Unlike traditional stain, the gel stain I used goes right over existing stain and varnish – without having to sand!

General Finishes Gel Stain is so easy to apply and is faster and easier than painting!
