I have told you about how we saved all the cypress from the house before we tore it down..
I showed you how we had to plane each of the boards
I have told you about how we had family and friends gather to help hang it
I thought I should share with you just how we finished it. At first the staining process was not going well.
No matter what I used I couldn’t seem to get a finish on the boards like I imagined.
One board would look great and then the next would look really bad. Many of you mentioned using a conditioner on the boards before staining, but I couldn’t find one that said it was for outdoor use.
In one final attempt I headed to Home Depot and found this…
The color is very consistent without looking like paint…I love it! On top of that it is easy to apply….Stay tuned for the finish project..
