Just to prove to myself that I’m still working on this cabinet, I started staining the sides with a black stain that I bought a few weeks ago at Rona. This stuff should not be used in a poorly ventilated basement.
It’s looking good after the first coat, but it will surely need a lot more to get it the depth of black that I’m looking for. I’ll probably end up having to put a really shiny topcoat on it to give it gloss I’m looking for.
I also discovered that I know absolutely nothing about sanding stuff properly. Mental note: I need to research what the best grit of sandpaper is to use for the OSG plywood the cabinet sides are used for and what I should be using to prep the stain for a second coat.Read full post
