Did you apply the stain with a brush? I would love mine to be darker. Plus the cabinets I've added would all match. Any more help with your process would be great. Thanks in advance

Cabinet Painting and Natural Stone

Yes. All applied with brush. I applied a first "scratch" coat, waited 24 hours for good adhesion, and applied second "detailed" coat. Came out beautiful. Tomorrow I will be added second coat to overhead entertainment center and will post before/after pics.

The Natural Stone Backsplash is actual stone, not plastic. Interlocking, easy to use snip pliers to end pieces to allow fit. Adhesive backing, but added Liquid Nails to backing. Solid. Nothing has come loose. Not a one.

The espresso works OK on the wrapped trim pieces?

Yes. I wiped every thing down with Alcohol, used Q-tips for every edge, corner. If you miss a spot, it will peel. When I did a sample section, I used Vinegar and the paint peeled. Tried Alcohol, since I can't use any chemicals such as TSP, and it worked great. The trick is to be patient. Let your first "scratch" coat dry 24 hours if your paint is a 3 in 1. No need to primer.
