Update an oak banister by staining it. I used Polyshades Bombay Mahogany. The beauty of Polyshades is that it’s stain and poly all in one. I did NOT sand, prime or do any prep to my railings, I simply brushed on the Polyshades to darken and deepen the color of the stain.
GOOD TO KNOW: a great tip for making a wreath: go to the plumbing department at LOWE'S and grab a six foot long piece of foam tubing for $.97!! snip the length you want and duct tap ethe ends together. Foam ones are SO expensive!
