Tips for Staining your Wood Floor and Wood Furniture

by Guest on Sep 15, 2011

Wood furniture staining can be a tricky challenge. To make this task a lot more easier and to obtain remarkable results, follow these easy stepwise instructions.

 

Step one: Preparation of the furniture

It's important that you completely strip the piece of furniture to be stained. There are various products in stores specifically designed for this purpose. They willtake off all traces of paint and varnish, stripping off the furniture to the bare wood on which to put on stain. The next step of this process is to sand your furniture with fine sandpaper to remove irregular bumps or irregularities. For best results, you should always sand according to the wood grain direction.

 

Step two: Time to stain.

Now that the furniture is well stripped and also sanded, you can now proceed to the staining process. First, clean up the furniture surface thoroughly, removing all presence of dirt. Once you've made sure that the surface to be treated is ok and completely dry, mix the furniture stain until the desired shade is reached and then test the color on an inconspicuous piece of your furniture. You are actually ready to stain your furniture with a sponge specifically designed for this kind of job. Best-selling stains are water-based stains, hybrid stains, and, of course, oil-based stains. Water-based funiture stains are the most economical and easy to apply. The principal advantages to apply oil-based hybrid stains are their low odor and faster drying time.

 

Step three (final step:) Varnishing.

The next and final step is to apply varnish on the now stained piece of furniture. The varnish helps to protect the furniture against wear, scratches, and UV rays, as well as render a beautiful finish (semi-gloss, gloss, matte or satin).

 

Well, you now have a beautiful piece of furniture who is stained and varnished. It only remains well maintained to preserve it well. You need a good wood furniture cleaner. A quality wood floor cleaner is perfect for this.
