In this edition of "Just Ask Bruce" from Minwax®, Dave has an old nightstand that needs refinishing and some basic repairs. Instead of buying a new one, he wants to recycle this old piece of furniture to save money and fix it up to last a lifetime. Minwax® expert Bruce Johnson walks us through a simple, three-step wood finishing process to help Dave with his project : - Start by sanding the wood with 120-grit, then moving to a 220-grit sandpaper. - Use a pre-stain wood conditioner to ensure the stain applies and dries evenly, without blotches. - Apply a wood stain in your favorite shade with a natural bristle brush, along the direction of the grain. - Add a coat of clear protective finish for that extra bit of shine and long-lasting protection. Used in this video: Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, Minwax® Wood Finish™ in English Chestnut, and Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane.
