Hi there. I tested the rustic brown on pt boards (one new from store, one about a month or so old). The stain was dramatically darker on the older board. Since I am told to wait a few months before staining a new deck should I expect the rustic brown to be very dark? It looked like oxford brown when compared to your site colors, in your experience is this normal for rustic brown? I love the color on the new boards (a medium, warm brown). Thank you.
The more absorbent the wood the darker to color will be. It is not nearly as dark as the oxford though. It should end up being a medium brown after the prep.
