Exterior Staining the Easy Way
If you’ve ever used an exterior stain on an outdoor project, you know it can be messy. Applying wood stain typically requires multiple steps, including rolling or brushing on the stain, wiping it in, cleaning up brushes and storing leftover stain. Then there’s scrubbing the stain off your hands. It’s enough to ruin an otherwise good Saturday.
But now exterior wood stain is available in a spray can, so you can achieve the same durable, water-repellant, fade-resistant protection you get from a bucket of wood stain, with spray paint convenience. Available from Krylon (www.krylon.com) at hardware and home improvement stores, Exterior Semi-Transparent Wood Stain is quick and easy to apply, promising fast project completion without the mess. So you can finish your weekend project in time to beat the heat and watch the ballgame.
Because spray stain applies smoothly to both vertical and horizontal surfaces without runs or drips, do-it-yourselfers get a beautiful finish that will hold up to the toughest conditions, without hauling out a paint pan and roller or brush. It is ideal for smaller projects such as wood furniture, planters, picnic tables, spindles, play sets, shutters, mailboxes and more.
Why bother staining at all? Exterior stain is considered the best, most practical way to protect and beautify wood. When wood is exposed to the elements, particularly sunlight and moisture, it will mildew, crack, fade and structurally deteriorate if not protected. Wood stain contains UV inhibitors and other substances that, when absorbed into the wood, protect it.
Semi-transparent stains are extremely popular because they add colour while allowing the natural beauty of the wood grain show through the finish. Krylon Exterior Semi-Transparent Wood Stain is available in four of today’s most popular exterior wood stain colours, Cedar, Honey Gold, Rustic Brown and Redwood, so you can match, accent or coordinate with popular exterior stain colours sold in buckets and used on decks and home exteriors.
