I love when I get to do a project that is out of the ordinary. So, when a friend called me about giving a makeover to a wine barrel her husband brought home from a North Georgia winery, I was excited.
I used a chip brush to stain the wood with Dixie Belle Paint Company's No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut. I love this stain! It is the consistency of pudding, so it's not as messy as traditional stains... no drips.
It covered beautifully with just one coat.
I added Dixie Belle's Silver Gilding Wax to the metal bands to brighten them up & cover any discoloration.
After letting the stain cure for several days, I sealed it with tung oil.
