Grape Arbor Under Construction

We’re sprucing up the grape arbor!  Rain is interfering with completion but it’s under way.

This was our grape arbor when we bought our home…
This guy seemed to like it but we felt it was a tetanus shot waiting to happen. 
Rusty posts were replaced with wood beams…(thanks to the help of my stepdad, Butch, and Mr. DIY).
I  had hoped to finish staining it this year before the leaves and vines sprouted but the weather hasn’t been cooperative.  However, yesterday was a pretty sunny day and we were able to get started.
Krylon Wood Stain makes the task so much easier!  Using a brush to apply stain in hard to reach areas can be so tedious.  Krylon Spray Stain is much more time efficient with the same results. 
The nozzle can be rotated to provide a vertical or horizontal spray.
Before…

Shake and apply according to instructions on the can (just like spray paint).

A beautiful finish.  We’re using the color “Earthen Brown”.  It’s the darkest stain Krylon offers. 

Have you ever stained the railing and spindles on a wood deck?  Hard work!  Think about how much easier spraying it on would be.
