Whenever we do a project, it’s always a cross-your-fingers-and-hold-your-breath endeavor. We also fail pretty hard a whole bunch before we write a single word. for example, we should have some custom huge slabs of raw wood hanging up right now – but we don’t. We didn’t think about the fact that the wall might be curved on this 1930 cottage. Especially after Joey cut said wood perfectly straight to sit flush against that wall. Doh. Back to the drawing board. So it’s nice when we do something, and it works out, and then it continues to work. We love that stuff.
So this stain. It’s good. It’s easy to use, looks good, and has shown zero wear. Even for us rough and sticky folks. We blogged the process a few months back – only staining two of six chairs, and staining them two different colors.
The picture above is when we stained the two chairs. Then we sat and waited and didn’t stain anymore, because that’s what we do now. We live with things a long time to make sure we love them. Staining is no small process when it comes to chairs because to do a really good job, it’s best to take them apart.
We are so happy to report that they both still look fantastic. We agreed two coats of Olympic Maximum in Royal Mahogany with a Semi-Transparent finish was the right selection, so it looks like we will be moving forward and staining the remaining chairs. Yay progress.
Check out what the other bloggers from #behindtheseal are up to with their staining project with Olympic Stain and if their projects were #uptothetest. If you have no idea what I am blabbing’ about, check out this post and hop on our instagram account and catch up.
We are so excited about this partnership and can’t wait to show you what we honestly think! We have been sponsored by Good Housekeeping and Olympic Paint, and promise to continue to be honest about reviews in our posts.
