: Hello, I removed the stains, bleached my oak cabinets. I stained them with pickled-white stains. Now I can't find a polyutherane satin top coat which wouldn't turn gold. I found one made by PRO-WATRBORNE, but it is semi-gloss and too shiny. I am looking a satin finish polyurethane which wouldn't turn gold or amber. Could you please help me? Thank you.

Dear Hedy,
I spend many years doing this for a living and these are the two best products I have found although there are always new ones coming out. I always used "Old Masters" acrylic sanding sealer as my first coat because a sanding sealer raises the grain and you can sand it down nicely. Then I used "Penchrome" acrylic finish, as many coats as you want sanding lightly between them. Acrylics will not yellow, I used to use them over faux finishes. Penchrome makes a satin finish.
