We are starting week number 3 of a professional home remodeling project. To save some money I'm doing the painting and also the staining of new molding. I'm finished with the molding so the finish carpenters can hang it. I stained all those boards the traditional way and then added two coats of MinWax polyurethane. Now I also have 3 sets of sliding doors and 3 sets of windows that need to be stained and sealed. All 6 items are pre-finished on the outside, but the inside and tracks all are still bare wood. I'm thinking of the time saving benefit of MinWax brand Poly Shade since the 3 windows are on 2nd floor so I'll need to be a ladder monkey to get to the outer edges. Does that MinWax work as claimed and does it in fact get darker each application? BTW the stain color will be walnut and I want it dark walnut besides.
