"This one was challenging but the results paid off. So much dry wood and salt marks were challenging to match evenly during the process. It took 4 coats of stain with sealer and toner in between coats. GF Exterior 450 Chestnut Stain for the win and finished in 450 Exterior Topcoat satin. I’d like to thank Josie and all the staff from Léché Desserts who treated me so well while working on the door; it was truly a pleasure working with you guys." - Alejandro Vera Finition & Restauration of...
