Winner! Parawood oh my!

By Amanda Dillon, Artist at Mettle Modern Design in Navarre, FL.

This dining set was delivered to us in boxes by the client, after she purchased from an unfinished furniture store.  Once we got the boxes open, we weren't staring at a solid wood table at all, we were staring at parawood.  If you've never stained parawood before, it can be tricky.  Especially when using a water based product.  After a few hand attempts, we developed a new staining method.  

We completed this set with our sprayer using a custom toner created from GF HPTC and Walnut water based stain.  We sprayed several coats until the desired tone, and evenness of tone was achieved.
