More Kitchen Cabinets

The oven cabinet was completely unfinished and I wanted to put a finish on it so that it would match the other cabinets and be easier to clean. I have been using Minwax “Express Color” water based stain in light oak and water based Minwax Polycrylic finish. Both are incredibly easy to use and dry extremely fast. Instead of wiping the stain on and off, I used a wide foam brush to apply both the stain and the polycrylic. I got the whole cabinet finished with stain and two coats of poly in one day.

The drawers and the cabinet were well scrubbed before the stain was applied.

The finished oven cabinet was shoved back in the corner and leveled.

I also put a second coat of epoxy on the fourth cabinet, the one in the foreground. i haven’t trimmed the edges yet but it is put in its former place. Actually I was getting used to the more open kitchen so I may move this cabinet to a wall in the dining room. We have the additional cabinet top under the wall cabinet now and in this position it really limits access to the kitchen.
