I'm testing this product today on one of my DIY rustic trays.

A tray built from a single plain pine board is best to show you the effects of Weather Wash on the raw wood.

Weather Wash Stain is super simple to use. Once I built the tray, I started painting with the stain using a small chip brush.

The color I chose is called pined and has a beautiful silvery gray look, perfect for this beachy project. 

As soon as you begin painting you can see the color of the wood changing instantly.

Within minutes the tray turned a beautiful driftwood color.

As you can see the wood under the handles is a slightly different color because it was a different kind of wood, not sure what but not pine like the center piece. 

I added handles to the tray and once dry, it was ready for a stencil.

I chose one of my favorite beach signs to decorate the tray.

The company recommends using a sealer or an oil as a topcoat on your project once the stain has dried. 

You can read more about their many products on the Weather Wash website.

As for me I am totally sold on the product and look forward to trying all their different colors and products in the future.
