Never try to stain redwood with black semi-transparent stain.....It does nothing! I just wasted an hour staining the picnic table I made for the girls with some leftover stain I had from another project. It was a huge failure, you can't even tell that I put 3, yes that's right, 3 coats of stain on. FAIL!!!!!
I guess I will head to Sherwin Williams for some stain tomorrow, something that will actually look like I applied some color! I really want to get the picnic table stained so I can play with my vinyl...I can't wait!
