We've made additional changes to our kitchen so I should get some newer photos. The gel stained cabs have held up extremely well. The process was pretty easy. Just cleaned well, lightly sanded and used general finishes java gel stain. Let me see if I can find a link to my 'directions'...

Propagation of Texas Sage

posted by: campeador on 09.06.2010 at 07:53 pm in Trees Forum
