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. The premium finish we offer is from Rubio Monocoat. It is a stain and a protective coat all in one, so the cost is higher, but much easier to apply and maintain. If you'd like to choose a color from Rubio Monocoat, just type the color in the "Notes" section at checkout.
