Are you going to paint it?

Believe my wife will finish it. But if I have anything to say.... classic grey stain bottom. Top dark stain. Maybe expresso, tobacco, etc...

I asked, mainly because construction lumber tends to warp, because it's rarely fully dried, Stain and a finish, might be a workable plan, but there are places where you'll have a hard time being sure you've sealed the wood.  Paint tends to cover those areas a little better.  I like the design, but construction lumber will give you problems over time.
