Wiping Stain vs Penetrating stain
We are completely rebuilding our kitchen........floor, cabinets, counter top, walls.
We are using off the shelf No.1 and No.2 pine planks with knots for the flooring, and pine planks for the cabinet doors.
What is the difference in using a WIPING STAIN vs PENETRATING STAIN ? We want an old, antique, faded look.... streaks, light and dark spots....nothing solid colored.....just old looking.
........and what would just an oil based paint do with pine????
