Updating honey oak railing. 

The product I used was stain+poly in mission oak satin by Varathane from Home Depot. Click here for link to product. Amazon carries the Miniwax brand in the same product here
With this project I did lightly sand the hand rail just took a sponge and wiped down the top of it wear it gets the most use. I however did not sand the large spindles or the base. This product really adheres to the wood. Once it cures it has a very durable finish.
The finish was so smooth after the new stain dried.
I wish painting the trillions of spindles was as gratifying and as simple. But it took what felt like forever....a week










 The staining was the easy part. It covered well, some areas took more the 2 coats but for the most part it was a 2 coat process. I was so happy with the update and it really broke up the honey oak that was throughout the house. As you can see this was a labor of love but worth it in the end. 


 I hope this helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.

Don't let fear of trying something hold you back. It's okay to make mistakes along the way, that's how we learn what we don't like.


When I use a product I do try to link it for you and if you decide to purchase the product I am affiliated with some of those companies. Its the only way to offset the time it takes building my how tos for decorating and DIY.

I am in no way asking you to click and purchase any items but it makes it easier for all the info to be on one site. Many different stores carry the products I use. But the links I provide is where I had purchased.


I hope that helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.
