Stain new home trim ourselves or hire someone?
We are general contracting a new home and have gotten to the painting stage. In order to save some money we have decided to paint the house with some help from family. We were planning on staining the trim ourselves too, but we want a medium-dark oak trim and have had a hard time finding a color that turns out the same at home as it is on the store sample. On top of that we can't seem to get it to look consistant from one peice of trim to another even though we are doing the EXACT same thing each time. Has anybody else had experiences staining their own trim? Would you recommend hiring somebody to do it?
