Exterior 450 Stain & Top Coat Showcase

We used General Finishes Exterior Products to refurbish the horse stalls in our barn - they had been empty and untreated for almost 10 years, and the results were fabulous. See before and after pictures below. After power power-washing and sanding down the previous oil base finish, we sprayed a 50/50 mixture of Olde Cherry Exterior 450 Stain and Coffee Bean Exterior 450 Stain mixed with an equal quantify of Exterior 450 Clear top coat. Next time we might add a little dye stain.
