Okay, I must admite defeat. I am not "every woman". I started to stain the cabana and first I noticed that the nail holes were showing on the trim so they needed to be puttied. The second thing was I lasted an hour and felt like I was going to throw up from the smell and heat. So, we were hiring someone to stain the outside-same color that it is- and now they are going to finish the inside for me. I must admit I hate painting!! Love to paint as an artist but not rooms.
