Ok… went shopping today at Harbor Freight. LOL… now I know why people try not to ever tell anyone to go there. I saw a couple of things that made me wonder but overall I didn’t find anything I couldn’t live without.
BUT… usually I hit the craft stores and I opted out of Hobby Lobby. My mom made me go to Michael’s instead of the pawn shop (looking for tools lol). As we were leaving I saw a display of Minwax products. This is what I ended up getting.
At my Lowe’s the 8oz cans of Minwax Wood Finish is 4.77. I got them for 1.99 each on clearance. The spray cans are 7.87 and I got them 3.19. I don’t know how much the wood conditioner is at Lowes but I got it for 1.99 as well. And I got the can of Polyacrylic for 1.79. I got it all for 29.19.
So my question… Some of the cans are different. Some say “Wood Finish” and the others say “Wood Stain”. What’s the differences? And… What am I gonna use the Polyacrylic for? And… what do you guys think about the spray cans?
I just got one of each color they had because they were cheap and I wanted to try different colors to see what I liked most.
Thanks for all your help. I’m still learning this stuff. Now I need to go get out there and make something on my new workbench I made yesterday. And try out the colors that I just bought. I’m still on a high about how well the workbench turned out… and even more excited that it’s #4 right now.
