Before starting to stain wood it's important to prepare your wood correctly. Firstly remove any dust and debris by either sanding, using a wax remover or a paint and varnish remover. Once completely clean, sand your wooden surface down to ensure a smooth and fresh surface.
Stir your wood stain thoroughly before application and follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the tin. Using a smooth movement, apply the wood stain following the grain of the wood applying the wood stain evenly along the surface. Once finished, leave it to dry according to the instructions. As a general rule, the longer you leave it, the darker the finish you will achieve.
