Stain Colors

We use Minwax® penetrating wood stains, America’s #1 selling interior stain. We use these stains because they are readily available, have great depth of color, and work extremely well with the water-based and Swedish finishes we use. Recently reformulated to lower VOCs, Minwax® stains typically dry in about two hours. Minwax® offers a wide range of colors to choose from, including tried-and-true favorites and bolder options. But if none of their stock, out-of-the-can colors are exactly to your liking, we’re happy to create a semi-custom color just for you—whether you're looking for a classic, traditional look or a modern, edgy vibe. 

  • Early American is a warm, medium brown color that gives a classic look to wood.

  • Ebony is a very dark, almost black color ideal for creating a modern or sophisticated look.

  • Golden Oak is a light to medium brown with warm undertones that give a natural, more rustic look.
