I kind of hate wood. I'm one of those terrible, sinful people that will paint old wood furniture aqua, yellow, or antique white rather than treat it properly. I don't whisper sweet nothings to my wood furniture and seductively offer to apply another coat of stain to it. I mostly just paint it and eventually forget that it ever had a lovely cherry finish.
This led to a small problem in my apartment. No matter what I tried… I HATED those damn cabinets. Until I found this solution.
