Well last weekend the weather was so nice that I finally got my summer kitchen stained. I used Early American but it came out really dark which is fine by me. I let the board and batten weather for a year and half, so it really sucked up the stain. I wanted to get this project done before the snow started to fly. I also stained the front porch. I have been asked to post a picture, so here it is. I even put in a little garden at the side. I put in 2 sedums and 3 hostas.
