Getting Restoration Hardware's Weathered Grey Oak

If you love Restoration Hardware's color as much as I do, this project is for YOU. The below image is from their catalog, it's Restoration Hardware's Reclaimed Grey Oak. The color is completely perfect and now's it's also easy to achieve!

To achieve this look, start with a raw wood surface.
The wood must be sanded, you can have it sent through a large sanding machine at the mill or you can sand it really well with a hand sander. You should start with 80 grit and then 120 grit. (You can do a finish sand at the end, at 220 or above.)

Applying the Restoration stain is like a piece of cake, read "even easier than typical stains." 
Using a large brush and drench the wood with stain. (See above video, also shown on oak.) Let the wood air dry for 60 minutes.

3.] SEAL
If your project is on a high traffic or water area, you will want to let  seal with 2-3 coats of Weatherwood Varnish, allowing 120 minutes between coats.

Didn't the color turn out dreamy? The process could not be easier. Do not forget readers save 10% with code: WELCOME10. If you have any  questions, leave'm in the comments below and I will see you tomorrow at the party!
