September 29th, 2020

Last Tech Tuesday for September is up, wine cellar fans! So summer has officially ended, but we’re absolutely falling in love with the start of the Fall season. Don’t mind the pun because today’s project is anything but a joke. This rustic but refined beauty is one for the books – or for the WCI photo gallery:

Rustic but refined beautyWe’ve said it so many times, but it’s still worth emphasizing that stains and finishes can really do wonders for your wine cellars. If you have a design theme in mind or you want to refresh the look of your wine racks, this is the way to go. Check out the racking assembly of our clients. They wanted something that reflected old country charm. However, they also want a clean and refined ambiance to their wine room. So our design team decided on this Rustic Pine x Graywash combo:

Graywash stain gives rustic but refined vibesGraywash is a highly popular stain option, particularly with furniture. WCI incorporated this stain into our stain and finish database just a few years ago. It was an instant hit because it brought a lot of character to almost any kind of wood. The intensity of the colors vary with the wood. In this case, you can see how it works with a light-colored wood like Rustic Pine.

Rustic Pina x Graywash stainThe Graywash stain we offer here at WCI has been carefully tested over several months. We wanted to offer customers a stain option that can reflect a modern vibe but still with traditional touches. We believe this is exactly what Graywash can bring to your wine cellars. As a semi-transparent stain, you will notice that no texture can come through. What you get is a smooth finish while showing the beauty of the wood beneath it. We highly recommend using our handy Interactive Swatch Viewer when choosing your wood x stain/finish pairing. You’ll be able to get a proper visual of how your wine racks will turn out. *Cheers*
