this preservative you put on, is an oil based product....even with an oil based stain, you may struggle to add the chosen colour, due to the water repellent,

i suggest you do use an oil based stain, and test an inconspicuous area first...unless of course Kingfisher actually do a stain to suit the preservative coat, you've already applied....

the sooner the better really, as adding a stain/preservative is done to stop the weathering....

Staining a Summerhouse
Nov 8th, 2011, 3:18pm
 
Firstly, I'm not sure if I've come to the right 'room' to ask this question, however, hopefully someone may be able to help.

I have erected my shed/summerhouse combi, prior to putting it up, I treated all the wood with a clear, oil based preservative, with added water repellent (Kingfisher).  Now, I need to add some colour.

Would you give the wood a season or two to 'weather' before applying a wood stain, or would you do it sooner rather than later?

Thanks in advance.
