This is my first Anna White project. It turned out really well.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
Rust-O-Leum Brand Kona (2x4s) and Paprika (1x12s)

Project itself is quick to build (maybe 2 hours or so) but properly applying the stain takes a bit of time and paitence.

I applied one coat of of stain with a 2 1/2 inch angled synthetic brush using the colors listed. Let them soak for about 5 mins then wipe clean with a soft clean cotton rag. Let dry overnight. Followed by applying three coats of Rust-O-Leum brand polyurethane. Wait three hours min between coats. Then dry overnight. Didn't turn out as smooth as I hoped for but the weather conditions were not warm for February in KY. So I advise actually following the temp suggestions as listed on your stain product. I didn't have paitence to wait for Spring.
