    Comments about General Finishes, Water Based Dye, Merlot, Quart :

    We used this product to achieve a "true" traditional cherry look for unfinished oak kitchen cabinets for my husband's man cave in the basement. We were trying to match the traditional cherry color of his pool table. All I can say is, it turned out absolutely beautiful. We tried stains, but they didn't come close to the color & rich look we were after until we tried the merlot wood dye. We loved it so much that we then purchased unfinished oak flooring and did the floors even darker but with a high gloss finish.
