I built a potting bench this summer from supplies and directions given to me for Christmas last year. I wanted to protect the wood from weathering and rot, so I bought some stain and sealer and got it on before the cold, wet weather set in. I have been very interested in the stains with color pigments in them, so I decided to try it out on this project.
I really like the green pigment in this semi-transparent stain. It allows the wood grains to show through, but the wood is protected and - it's green! What do you think?
