Water Based Wood Stains have all the advantages of oil based stains: they spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly and have plenty of open time. The thicker formula allows controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on softer wood. They are a great choice for your next project!
These kitchen cabinet transformations come from Cabinet Refresh. They are based in the Los Angeles area and work almost exclusively with General Finishes products. Their work is top notch! Here are a few examples of their amazing talent.
Oil and water based finishes do not mimic one another regarding highlighting the figure of the wood. Oil based products will generally achieve more color and definition.
