Stained Navy Wooden Crate
Step by Step Instructions
1PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area, like your garage, and use a drop cloth to protect from stain. Before you begin, sand the crate with sandpaper, working your way up through #120, #150, and #180 grits. Use a tack cloth to wipe away the sanding dust in between each grit.
2STAIN: Stir or shake your Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain in Worn Navy thoroughly. Then, use a lint-free cloth or brush to apply a generous amount of stain to the crate, working in manageable sections. Let the stain sit for a few minutes and then wipe away the excess with a clean rag. Always wipe in the direction of the wood grain. Once the crate is completely stained, set it aside to dry for one hour.
3POLYURETHANE: Once your crate is dry, stir your Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane in Satin with a stir stick. Then, apply the polyurethane with a brush in one smooth, even coat. Be sure to brush in the direction of the wood grain.
4FINISH: Let the polyurethane cure for 48 hours before using the crate.
