After a recent visit to Natalie's blog at In the Night Sky I noticed her back verandah decking wasn't the usual brown, it had a greyish look to it.
I headed over to the Cabot's website to see what colour options they had. After I found the product I will need to use, I jumped onto the colour page and was surprised at the variety available. There was even a section on grey. I particularly like 'Hunter Grey' below.
I didn't want the standard brown/natural colour because I don't think it would suit the cottage with all the white and grey colour and I didn't want to hide the grain in the timber. I did want a bit of colour and I think this might just work.
The Cabots website said to wait 4-6 weeks before applying the stain so I have a couple of weeks to wait.
I think it's OK if I head back to Bunnings and pick up the stain now so it's ready and waiting.
