My 1995 honey oak kitchen was screaming for a makeover. I first painted the cabinets white only to find they were miserable to keep clean. Two years later, they also started to yellow. A few months back, my neighbor that has the same home style as me, was upgrading her kitchen and gave me her honey oak cabinet fronts, a nice upgrade from my existing cabinets. A great opportunity to get the kitchen color of my dreams. Looking for a richer color, I combined equal parts of General Finishes Georgian Cherry and Brown Mahogany gel stain. This is the classic look I wanted all along. This was a huge undertaking for this DIY'r, but General Finishes gel stain made the job so easy to do! I plan on doing my railings next!
