Please advise on wood stain to achieve this look ?
My kitchen ceiling currently is wide maple planks(unpainted) along with white painted beams running crosswise.
My ceiling inspiration is:
Cabinets are going to be a creamy white, white trim and crown molding, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, and light colored natural stone tiled floors.
I think for the beams I will just use an espresso colored paint like Benjamin Moore Bittersweet Chocolate:
Can anybody recommend stain options to achieve the look of the planks like in my inspiration pic? I am new to staining so brand / color / as well as any resources for instructions will be really helpful. Pictures will be great to. Oh, this will be DIY btw.
