Refresh with stain
A few brush strokes are enough to completely transform the look of a balcony. I discovered Sico’s opaque stain (available at RONA) which made things super easy all the while offering a superior quality. With opaque stain, you can choose any color from the repertoire and apply it just like paint.
If you’re like me, creating a mood board before the transformation will help guide and focus the overall look and feel of the project. That’s how I determined the stain colours used. I wanted a romantic look, that reminds me of Paris, with a Scandinavian touch. My final colour choices were Pinewood 6192-31 for the floor and Natural White 6000-11 for the rails.
