Step 1: Choose Wisely

First, you want to choose your stain. I recommend Varathane by Rust-Oleum for quality and it's easy to find.

Step 2: Sanding Is Everything!

You really want to take your time sanding the wood. Start with 80 grit and then use 120 grit. Any higher really isn't helpful.

Step 3: Apply the Stain

I generally always use a rag to apply. You can use a brush in hard to reach areas. Generally wipe with the grain and try not to stop in the middle of a run.

    I'm going to replace some pieces of horizontal fence (I guess they're called pickets) and the existing fence I have appears stained. How can I match the stain? I have no idea what product to buy. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Also - I noticed you've got a grey chalkboard in the background of this and it looks sad. :( Do you know the best way to clean that chalkboard wall!? Check out my instructable:
