Step 16: A bit more reveling. Once the stain has dried completely, it’s time to take another peek at the overall look. The difference this time is, we are doing it with a bit more purpose. Tip the project back, prop it up with a scrap 2x4 and put the doors in place. Take a good long look. Make sure you are happy with the color. If not, this is the time to make any adjustments. A second coat will darken up the existing color. A coat of another color will adjust the hue a bit. But if you’re happy with the look, it’s time to seal the deal.
