Layering Reactive Stains Buffet

This week's project comes from the talented Urban Farmhouse! This project is awesome because I've been dying to show you all how you can layer reactive stains! 


  • Palm Sander
  • 80 & 120 grit sandpaper
  • Sponge Brushes x2

1.] SAND
Sand the wood to remove any existing wood finish and open the grain. Begin with 80 grit sandpaper and, for a finer finish, you can sand with 120 before staining.

If you want a dark gray, you should use Reclamation. If you want a brown with gray in it, use Restoration. If you want BOTH, simply layer the stains! Brush on one, allow to dry 30 minutes and brush on the other. 

3.] PROTECT Use Weatherwood Varnish to protect the color and the wood. We recommend applying 2-3 coats, like the professionals.

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!
