Our untreated, natural crates have no wood sealer or stain.
Our antique stain is a non-toxic formula made with white vinegar, rusted steel wool and coffee. The solution oxidizes the tannins in the wood and changes the nature of that piece. Since each piece of wood is chemically different, this look can be inconsistent. Some pieces may be darker/lighter than others. It gives the crate a darker, more weathered look. This is not a wood sealer. It is strictly cosmetic.
Vintage white treatment involves a first coat of grey paint followed by a thin coat of white paint. The look in inherently inconsistent. Grey tones show through. Brush strokes and imperfections are part of the look.
