I'm trying to decide how much semi-transparent oil based stain (rustic brown) to buy for ~175 sq ft. floor, with rails and a few steps. 2 gallons? 3?
I'd go for a 5-gallon bucket if the shelf life is long enough so I could use leftover next time. What is the shelf life and proper storage method?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/15/20192-3 gallons is correct. Closer to two but hard to say for sure. The shelf life of an opened pail will last about 12 months.
