cedar arbor

hogan_njMarch 7, 2012

I am in process of building a cedar arbor. It will be placed in front yard in front of white fence. I do not want to just paint it white like fence,maybe a stain so you can still see the wood grain.

Could anyone recommend a type of stain that will bring out the wood grain but still match the white fence?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Just ask for something to white wash the fence. It will be like a thin coat of paint that allows the wood grain to show through a bit. If you want to protect it, ask whether you can use a flat or gloss sealer over it.
