Give the exterior of your home a farmhouse chic makeover with this collection of Solid Color Wood Stains from BEHR. This premium stain and sealer helps to hide imperfection in your outdoor wooden surfaces while still letting that beautiful natural wood texture show through. Use shades like Harbor Gray, Stonehedge, Wedgewood, Light Lead, and Gray Seas on your decks, patios, porches, and fences.
We wound up using Behr solid stain in Slate. We chose it because of its scores on a Consumer Reports test and we generally have had good results from Behr products. Our deck "after" painting. We liked the effect of the old Behr semi-transparent Redwood color showing through, so we left it.
