Is your home filled with honey or even pickled cabinets, railings and doors?  While you really want to make it all go away and fast, does the thought of ripping up your bathroom or kitchen have your head spinning when you think about the mess? The expense?  All of the decisions that you would have to make?

Whether you are planning on Restyling your current place because you want to enjoy it for the long haul, or you’re wanting to upgrade your house before you put it on the market to maximize the sale price; having the wood gel stained a more stylish color or painted is a lot less dramatic of an ordeal. No countertops, floors, or drywall is ever harmed in the process.  In fact, I’m going to show you my two most popular sample choices for refreshing the look of your home so you can start imagining the possibilities right away.

If you have light countertops and are digging the look of deep dark expresso than I’d suggest going with the always beautiful, Java. This sample door is the same exact one as pictured above after several coats of Java Gel.

If your heart is set on going with a fresh, but much lighter look,  this linen color with a heavy brown glaze is another very popular choice.  You can decide if you want glaze and even how much, if at all.

Of course the options available are pretty much endless, especially when you consider the impact of adding or changing out hardware too! However, if you are wanting to go with a style that is either ‘neutral dark’ or ‘neutral light’, these are samples are currently the two most popular choices of Restyle Junkie clients.
