When browsing your local hardware store looking for something to protect and seal your furniture, you could be thinking you can use either a stain or a finish to achieve the look you’re after. What few people know is that even though the two terms are used interchangeably, they aren’t the same thing. The confusion started when a particular brand of both of wood stains and finishes mislabeled their products and ever since it’s been the bane of many a woodworker or furniture crafter’s existence. No one is really sure how they came about mislabeling such a popular and useful product, and to this day, it’s still a mystery. Anyhow, the two are different. We’re going to explain that difference and how each enhances your furniture.

You look around for it, and there it is — right next to your kid’s sippy cup. It’s a hot day, so your coffee has begun to sweat, and now there are two water stains on your great-grandma’s table. Now what do you do?
