Take a look at the options for stain and paint! Our standard stain options are from Varathane. These are what you'll see as options when you add an item to your cart. When this option is selected, we apply a clear coat after staining. There is no extra charge for this option. The premium finish we offer is from Rubio Monocoat. It is a stain and a protective coat all in one, so there is an up-charge, but much easier to apply and maintain. This is our preferred finish and believe it's a much better product! If you'd like to choose a color from Rubio Monocoat, just type the color in the "Notes" section at checkout. The extra cost for this option is $65 and will be billed separately after checkout.
