Staining the Front Porch Part Two

Yours truly hard at work on the front porch getting up close and personal with the oak timbers.   

I did the left side last week, so I put a second coat of stain on the side and then had time to get the first coat on the others.  

MUCH easier to cut in on the second coat! 

Where the five beams tie together was a nightmare challenge to do a nice sharp edge and keep the dark stain off the ceiling panels. 

Strange as it seems, I enjoy painting.  No blue tape for me!

If you know how to handle the brush, blue tape causes more trouble than it solves.

I'm happy with the colors... Shagbark on the beams and Summerhouse Beige on the ceiling.
