Cabinet Stain

I had a lot of trouble getting the Minwax stain to match the cabinet doors. I bought about 4 quarts in an attempt to mix the right color, but I couldn't get it work.

I went the Sherwin-Williams Paints, and they did a great job matching the color of the door to a stain for he face-frame wood. A quart of custom matched stain is $35 and a gallon is $65, so I went for the gallon. The matching fee ends up being about $35, which is well worth it.

By the time I did my own experimenting and bought the stain, plus the polycrylic coating, I am into to for about $100.
