Paint vs stain on pine Pella French doors with interior shades
Just got new Pella French doors which have built-in shades between glass. Unfinished pine interiors. Was going to stain but think now pine stained will show more imperfections. But.issue with painting is that the shade slider mechanisms on rim that gets raised or lowered look as if they'd scrape paint every time shade is used. Is this the case or how do others deal with painting this? Regretting now paying more for the shade Designer series. And if we can't paint, is there another stain option? Someone mentioned Bush Oil but we don't want to touch these pricey doors without guidance. Thanks.
