Get The Weathered Look By Using These Great Gray Stain Colours

Get the trendy look of reclaimed lumber with these great gray stains

Does your deck reflect the latest home fashion trend? You frequently update your wardrobe, your residential decor and your vehicle. Don't miss the opportunity to display your great sense of style when you entertain outdoors, too. The current buzz in deck stains focuses on the oh-so-chic weather beaten gray motif reminiscent of antique reclaimed wood. You can get this look on your wood by applying fine, premium gray stain colors. Here are our top four choices of gray wood stains that are guaranteed to give your deck that weathered rustic farmhouse look.

4. Driftwood Gray

If you've longed for a heavily weathered beach front appearance or a desirable rustic farmhouse look, then the brown overtones of our Driftwood Gray semi-transparent stain will delight you. It meshes well with beige and polished wood surfaces and will make a very stylish backdrop to showcase wooden deck chairs, tables and patio furniture.

As a semi-transparent liquid, the stain does not interfere with the unique texture of the underlying boards. Apply it over Pine or Oak with confidence. Driftwood Gray will convey the grey colour you seek without overwhelming strong wood grain accents and give you a gorgeous weathered look like fine aged barnwood.


3. Corundum

Do you appreciate dark grays? As its name suggests, Corundum offers the tough, steel-toned hues required to cover faded wood stains effectively. When used as a colour of resurfacer, it will hide both the natural colour and the wood grain of underlying surfaces. Darker than many grey stain colors, it maintains a unique, distinctive quality.

This vivid shade allows property owners to develop sharp contrasts between a gray porch, deck or outdoor staircase and lighter-toned exterior trims. Corundum avoids the severity of black, without sacrificing a strong, powerful tone. Get a weathered look on your wood more easily using this product. Use it to accentuate and contrast your outdoor living areas.


2. 911 Cape Cod Gray

Our semi-transparent stains permit you to display your deck's strongest natural wood grains and textures. The elegant light gray of the 911 Cape Cod Gray colour captures the carefree, hip motif of a seaside beach retreat. It won't reveal every detail of the underlying wood surface, yet it will permit an alluring, distinctive display of the strongest features.

If you wish to retain the individual character of your home's exterior wood, then 911 Cape Cod Gray offers an attractive choice. It complements many different colour schemes to help achieve a rustic farmhouse look.


1. Silver Lining

Fully opaque, Silver Lining's lack of transparency conceals scratches and scuffs from years of hard use. Lighter gray than some alternatives, it can help you bring your deck into alignment with soft pastel exterior paints in residential trim.

But don't let this excellent stain's nimble overtones fool you: Silver Lining when used with a solid colour stain gives your wood a highly desirable weathered look as well as offering the tough, durable resistance required to keep your porch, deck or exterior stairs protected from wind, rain and pounding sun. Use it to revive aging exterior decors.
