Man, that porch looks SO GOOD stained. Really incredible.

I had just tried out the vinegar and steel wool trick, and I didn't get anywhere near the results I was expecting. Now I know why. I had red that the mixture reacts to the tannin in the wood, and since there's not a lot of tannin in pine, I didn't get a very dramatic effect. Their suggestion was to pre-stain the wood with black tea, but I like your suggestion of adding the coffee grounds right to the mixture even better. And your results definitely speak for themselves.

Now you're just showing off. Thanks for sharing the technique, and showing it so effectively. Really nice shingle roof as well. I wonder, are the lads hands on the ranch, or counsellors, or maybe troubled "yoots", doing public service?
