You’ve assembled and sanded your project, the can of varnish sits within reach, but this time you want something different than the usual look. You want this piece to match the top-end furniture in the best store in town or the antique in the living room. Or maybe you want to even out the varying colors of different boards that you’ve used, make a common wood look exotic, or add richness and depth to your project’s appearance. If you have any of these goals in mind, it’s time to do some staining. Staining relies on two types of colorants: pigment and dye. We’ll help you choose the right product for the job and apply it correctly.
