New Water Based Stain Colors
I'm looking into getting some new water based stain colors for my handcrafted furniture.The water based stains I get now do not have the greatest selection of colors.Really like to get colors that will pop out and add some charisma to the piece.I'm also getting into doing more buttermilk finishes too.One thing I like about doing an unfinished piece is that you can dent it up and distress the piece to give it an old grungy primitive look.You can paint it to give it a modern look.Or you can stain it to give it a country or rustic look. Let's not forget that you could hand paint or stencil your piece also.The best thing about buying an unfinished piece is that you can match the color to fit perfectly with your decor. In this day and age when everything is mass produced it's nice to know you can still purchase handcrafted pieces created just for you.
