OK, folks....am being told to finish new maple kitchen cabinets with two coats of sanding sealer, nothing else...for a low sheen (sort of furniture finish) permanent finish. Will not be able to re-stain or adjust color without removing sealer.
Local expert is nixing this....he says sanding sealer is used most properly OVER stain, to stop re-absorption of any further stain...is NOT used as a top coat...and that it will actually sort of disappear over a year or so, like being absorbed into the wood???
Now, I've seen a recent application of two coats sanding sealer, and it sure was pretty..
AND I am really confused!!!
Please un-confuse me!!
Would welcome suggestion about an easy, knock-em-dead finish for these cabinets (want a kind of Swedish look)...
Thanks so much in advance...sure appreciate help!!
