stain or paint
While figuring out how to finish the top of my table I decided to use some leftover pieces as samples. Each shelf came with small brackets that were supposed to be used to mount the shelf to the wall. I used each one to test what method I would be using, stain or paint. I had some choices at home already that I planned on using somehow. White wash pickling stain which I had used on my barn door, gray stain, and gray paint.
