I spent roughly $250 for the kitchen and three bathrooms - and some sweat equity of course. I used General Finishings Java Gel Stain. I do have some light spots on some of the kitchen doors - the key is to do light sanding - I think I over-sanded. I hand sanded the bathrooms and they turned out better. The green wall color is coming down this year.

This desk is a vintage writing desk. I painted it a white that has the slightest hint of red on the inside.

The red is Pittsburgh "Gumball" red and I used Rustoleum Java glaze for a hint of antiquing on the red. The stain color is Minwax Gel Dark Walnut.
