My friend Hillary stained this amazing farmhouse table using Minwax® Wood Finish™ Weathered Oak,
And I’ve been dying to try it out myself, so I was super excited to pick up a can.
Just like any other Minwax® Wood Finish™ , I mixed the stain well before application.
And then I just began applying the stain, with a natural bristle brush, working in the direction of the wood grain.
I then let it soak in for about 15 minutes.
And then began wiping excess stain off the project.
Man, this color is really lovely!
But it was a little on the modern side for my country Alaska home, and wasn't quite right for my space. I need to both darken and warm up the stain color.
One of the greatest things I've learned about staining is you have so much control of your finished project.
After testing an area, I added a layer of Minwax® Wood Finish™ in Special Walnut over top of the Weathered Oak.
Having the Weathered Oak under the Special Walnut brought a gray tone to the stain, exactly what I was looking for!!!
Happy with my stain color, it’s time to finish the project!
