How to refinish kitchen cabinets– Using Staining Technique

Use Sandpaper or Electric Sanders

While instigating with a DIY staining, it is important to keep your cabinet board protected from further fingerprints and dirt so that it can serve you for a couple of years ahead.

It is often found that we in general opt for birch or oak kitchen cabinets. Both are highly efficient and can serve you for ages without any editing. If you have birch cabinets then opt for a cherry stain but remember it is very important to have proper sanding before initiating the staining bits.

Use 120gt sandpaper for the purpose. Sandpapers help you to remove all the scratches and unwanted glitches caused due to years of service.  Before applying the wood conditioner, remove all the dust particles by aiding the conditioner to hold the wood board to its maximum. Conditioner helps to seal the stain and offers a fresh feeling to your aged kitchen cabinets.

Once the cabinet board is dry, start applying the stain on a balanced circular motion and make it absorb the stain thoroughly. To stain kitchen cabinets you can also take help of Internet. There are numerous sites that can serve you with different techniques of staining the kitchen cabinets. There is always a chance to know more! Isn’t?
