Stains and Finishes
We can work with any name brand stains or paints as long as your color selection is available in our region

When selecting stains it is important to view the stain on the same type of wood that the furniture is built with. We work primarily with PINE and OAK. It’s also important to understand that colors are stronger, brighter and darker on large surfaces than when viewed on small samples. If you are unsure please ask our opinion.
We work primarily with Sherwin Williams and the Home Depot lines of stains.
