Hi Sue, We want to refinish our kitchen cabinets and staircase banister and spindles. We want a dark espresso for the kitchen and the white spindles with a cherry stain for the banister to match our Brazilian hardwood floors. Can you recommend a striping product and stain. Also, the steps to take to prepare and complete out 2 projects. Thank you
