  1. What is the stain color on the cedar garage doors? So beautiful

    1. Thank you Tanya!!! The color is Behr "chocolate" semi-transparent weatherproofing wood stain. It's a standard Behr color but they have to make/mix it at the paint counter at Home Depot.

  2. When I look on the website, the color looks a little more solid. I love the way wood shows through in your garage. Special technique? Is the color more like last photo? Or one before last? Sometimes lighting makes a difference. Thank you for taking time to respond.

  3. I also like the darker look of one of the photos that still shows construction- was the paint not dry all the way yet and became lighter?

  4. We are having to make a decision on the stain today and I think we will choose this. If you have a moment to respond to the two posts above, I just wanted you to know I would greatly appreciate your kindness and time.

    1. SO SORRY Tanya, I just now saw this :(
      I applied two coats without any special technique. I found that it did help to start at the bottom to avoid any "stain trails" that can happen if you have some stain that accidentally runs down onto any un-stained wood. The bottom picture probably best shows the true color, but it does change depending on the sun.
      So sorry to be so late getting back to you!
