How To Color Meditteranean Furniture
Meditteranean furniture stain allows you to add a shade to the wooden furniture, as well as weather and wind protection. Oak has an open wood fiber, which means it needs filler before dying to achieve a completely smooth wood look. But many people prefer to refrain from putty and leave oak with a more natural grainy appearance. Almost anyone can color oak furniture with some simple supplies.
Sand Meditteranean furniture to smooth it. First use 120-grit sandpaper, then 220-grit sandpaper. Fill the wood fibers if a smooth consistency is desired. Wood fillers make the wood surface completely smooth. Open grainy woods, like oak, of course, have small open grains on their surface. Wood fillers fill these small cracks and create a smooth surface. For the most natural wood look, do not use filler.
Paint a layer of wood sealer on Meditteranean furniture, using a brush. Although wood does not need a seal to receive a stain, sealants help the wood absorb stains more evenly? For example, wood without sealer can absorb more bets along the cut ends of wood, as along the edges of a park bench, and will have an uneven color after staining. Paint a layer of wood stain on the furniture, using a brush. Apply whatever type of stain works best according to the instructions on the stain package. The three main types of wood stains are oil-based stains, water-based stains and stain / finish combinations. Paint a layer of wood surface over the stain with a brush, if the furniture has a layer of a stain / finish combination. Finish protects the wood from scratches and prevents finish color from wearing out unevenly over time.
