If you want to stain a previously stained or painted furniture piece, check out this tutorial and video where I show you how to easily apply paint that looks like a stain with six color options.
So everyone deals with stress in different ways and this year has absolutely been an “opportunity” to start some new hobbies for stress-relief.
Most people have learned a new love for bike riding, working in the yard, or DIY projects. But once again, I’m not like most people…
One Sunday afternoon in March, I decided to experiment with different stain options with my faux stain technique. My original Barnwood stain was a big hit but I wanted to give readers more color options.
I sat down and started mixing paints and creating samples like the DIY version of a mad scientist. Before I knew it I had created over 3 dozen different stain samples and there were even more little bottles of paint scattered all over my kitchen table. Who knew this would be my best option to de-stress during the craziness of this year.
And become I didn’t want to overwhelm you with TOO many options, I have condensed the options into the top 5 shades – 6 if you include my driftwood stain.
This technique has never let me down on several of my own furniture pieces and I hope it will be of some use to you too!
LET ME SHOW YOU:
- My tried-and-true stain technique for covering stained or painted furniture without stripping
- An alternative to traditional stain that is reliable no matter the wood type
- A “stain” that will easily cover wood imperfections like knotholes which means you don’t have to buy high-grade lumber for woodworking projects
- How I saved a ton of money by refinishing my damaged breakfast table top instead of buying a new table
- A great technique to make metal garage doors look like real wood
