Here I want to share the dirt cheap home-made stain I used on the two country kitchen credenzas I just finished. You get the home made stain made by soaking a steel wood pad in white vinager and a bit of balsamic vinager (to get it darker) for three weeks. On this particular project I added one coat of sanding sealer and three coats of wipe-on diluted water base polyurethane (50/50). I added few close-up pictures so you can have a better idea of the finish. Gently rub your screen to feel the finish! (just kidding!)
At this price, no need to tell you that I instantly became a fan of this dirt cheap and simple finishing technique.
You can watch the whole construction process from this page of my blog.
