Hi! I realize this is an old post but I have a question about your beautiful carport ceiling. I was all set to stain my patio ceiling and all the soffits this exact special walnut Minwax but was told that this stain is for indoor use only. How has yours held up? I am so bummed because I can’t find the same color in an exterior stain – thanks!
The stain of choice was Special Walnut by Minwax (our favorite stain color). We picked up a roll of from Lowe’s. They ended up being the perfect thing to wipe the stain off the boards. We only used 1 towel per board, so we ended up using just over one roll of towels. For less than $3 a roll, that isn’t bad at all.
