Transform a tired table and refresh your living space with this simple D.I.Y. staining project. With a few simple steps, you can give your furniture a brand-new look, creating a beautiful centrepiece for any room.
Tip: Since this project involves sanding and staining, it’s best to complete it outside.
Remove any handles or fittings. (You may need a hammer or drill for this step.)
If your table has any cracks, patch them up with filler.
Use an orbital sander to sand back the timber. Lightly press and let the machine do all the work.
Once you’ve finished sanding, wipe away the excess dust using a cloth.
There are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to staining – everything from clear to walnut to black. Choose one that will complement your space.
Depending on your desired finish, you may need to apply more than one coat. Don’t shake your can of stain beforehand, as this will form bubbles that may end up in your finished product.
Once you’ve completed your desired number of coats, leave to dry. Once dry, you can move your table back inside.
Choose a space to show off your table. Style it with candles, books and a vase, and use the drawers to conceal any unnecessary clutter.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
