The latest project here has been staining everything made of wood around the house; decks, porches, railings, fences, and lots of lattice. Some of our amazing neighbors helped today. This picture was actually taken during a rainstorm before we really got going. This railing hadn’t been stained yet, but a filter I used in Tadaa made it look like the wood does now. The stain settles into a decent color resembling “cedar natural tone,” but it is alarmingly orange when it first goes on. Oh well, it’s a rental.
