  1. How many different stains would you suggest sticking to when decorating? I have multiple projects in mind but I am having a hard time deciding what color stain to use.

  2. For the “Barnwood” look I typically do a whitewash/sand/stain process. Is that just an unnecessary step? Or is it just a matter of personal preference?

    1. It’s just a personal preference ๐Ÿ™‚ The chalked paint gives a white wash look over the stain for us and it’s a two step process.
