Required thorough cleaning and light sanding as prep and three coats to cover (I went for a solid dark cabinet, less coats if you want to see grain through). Used foam brushes to apply and shop towels to wipe off. You can use topcoat over this stain, but it is already a urethane...when I bought it, the label said topcoat wasn't necessary but I think due to its popularity they suggest topcoat to increase sales ;) Has the best finish of any product I have used, and I like their milk paint too. Great finish to give new life to old furniture.
