I love to post pictures of my success, but I figured I should also share some of my failures. After all, that’s reality.
So, after building a beautiful cedar table, I decided to finish it with a weatherproofing stain, Sikkens Cetol MRD. Seeing that this is an oil based product, I decided to cheap out and just get some disposable paint brushes that I wouldn’t have to clean. BIG MISTAKE! Here’s a picture of the horrible results with the finish.
Stay tuned. I’m going to sand and re-finish this table. Hopefully the second try turns out a little better. Let this be a lesson to all: Cheap paint brushes don’t save you money!
Here’s the link to the re-finished table. It looks gorgeous now! I’m so glad I went with cedar for this patio table.
