Golden Lager is a mid-tone brown stain that
enhances the wood by letting the grain clearly show
through and blends well with everything, including
treasured keepsakes and accent pieces. The beauty of this
stain is that it pairs well with a variety of colors and
finishes. Golden Lager is standard on Birch, Cherry,
Hickory, Maple and Oak and on Rustic Birch, Maple and
Cherry in Burnished Golden Lager.
Grey continues to trend in home and fashion design. A
dark grey color,

polished chrome and nickel.

and Oak species to give homeowners more options for this
popular door style.
