Yuck, oil-based anything is no fun. At least it turned out looking fabulous! :)

What brand of stain did you use? I heard Penofin and Sikkens are good, they don't have parafin in them. They're supposed to last up to 5 years, so at least you don't have to go through the pain every 5 years. I have a fence I want to stain, I'm waiting until August though, it'll take that long for the wood to dry out.

thanks all! nothing like a little extra pat on the back to make you feel good about your work

derek i used cabot semi-transparent oil based stain tinted to "mission brown"...i dont believe it has parrafin but is linseed oil based...i would definitely recommend this product as I couldnt be happier with the results

heather thanks! we do try to non-hackish work as freqently as possible ;)

Wow girls! I don't remember a pergola in your yard. Did you build it too. I'm envious. I have a arbor but no pergola. It's beautiful! And what a "handygirl" to be able to install a insinkerator. Even I won't try that. I thought I was pretty handy tell I watch you two work your magic. Can I come and take some lessons? I'm soooo impressed. GO GIRLS! My granddaughters are right, "girls rule, boys drool.

WOW!...persistance DOES pay off! Looks great, Honey. We still need to put the top boards on ours to encourage some shading now that we've taken the wisteria off 2/3 of it. And a new stain job would certainly help.
