Last summer we restored and stained our old front porch and made a YouTube video describing how we did it and how it turned out. We used Thompsons Water Seal Waterproofing Stain in Dark Acorn Brown. We are hoping to have a lot more projects like this when we move into our next house….which we pretty much know will be a **cosmetic** fixer upper.
The before picture. You can’t see the condition of the wood, but in the video you can. We recently put in new stairs and wanted everything to match.
