My first build

Submitted by Ame on Wed, 01/21/2015 - 08:12

This was my first build. I followed Ana's plans. I used Eastern White Pine and applied a pre-stain because pine almost never stains evenly.

I finished the project with a white wash and then a quick water based stain that I wiped off almost immediately. I ended up with a pale tan/grey color with a very subtle peachy color that peeks through in a few places. It doesn't show in the photo very well, but the colors gave me a lot of depth without a ton of wood grain showing.
