What is Wood Staining?
Before we tell you how to stain wood, it’s important to know what wood staining or refinishing actually is.
To stain wood, you’ll need a freshly sanded wood surface. From there, you apply a coat of stain to transform the wood’s color or emphasize the wood grain.
The process of staining and sanding a piece of wood is called refinishing. When you refinish a wood surface you strip the wood of any pre-existing varnish or stain.
Next, apply a new coat of stain followed by a wood finish of your choice, such as polyurethane, and that’s it!
