I want to add a little color to my kitchen cabinets without refinishing them. They are nutmeg oil based stain on oak, which is a medium orange-brown color. My target color is a touch darker to match the Rodda #19 stain the rest of our decor (one shade darker on the rodda chart). The cabinets are lacquered and in really good shape.
I have tried spraying tinted lacquer on past projects – just a teaspoon or two of universal color per quart of lacquer. I had pretty good results with this, but it can be tricky to get the color even. Also, if you get any runs in the lacquer they will have more concentrated color in those spots.
I am wondering if anyone has tried glazing cabinets over lacquer.
