 Rebecca Slaton 2011 Cabinetry Re-Stain Magic 



June 14-15, 2011

Tuesday through Wednesday

Class Fee $775

Tired of losing cabinet jobs to quick fix crews? If your answer is yes, then this is the class for you! Give your clients a long-lasting quality finish that is price competitive. Learn how to makeover old oak in just a few steps to achieve rich, durable and beautiful cabinets and furniture! We have spent months in our studio testing product combinations on old oak cabinets to find the fastest, most durable, and attractive finishes for re-staining existing cabinetry.

We will work on real stained and sealed doors to create 7 full size cabinet samples. You will learn 8 semi-opaque base stains in classic wood tones of Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Brown Mahogany, and Birch. You will also learn 9 semi-transparent wiping stains in popular designer colors of Espresso, Tea Leaf, Coastal Fog, Burnt Cherry, Bitter Chocolate, Twilight, Tuscan Olive, and Cloudy Skies. Mix and match wood bases with the wiping stains for endless color combinations.

Class fee includes 7 real wood sample doors, all products, and the following: 

  • Recipe book of base and over-stains that may be mixed and matched for multiple finish options!
