About this deal
The steel wool and vinegar solution are effortless to make and apply. Just place 2 #0000 steel wool pads in a clean glass jar and add 2 cups of white vinegar (enough to cover the steel wool). Seal the mixture with a lid and leave it away in a dark room for 2-3 days. Apply additional coats of stain if you want a darker color. If you want a deeper shade on your piece of pine, brush on a second coat the same way you applied the first one. After another few minutes, use a clean cloth to wipe off the excess. Keep adding more thin layers of stain until you’re satisfied with the appearance.  X Research source Apply pre-stain conditioner to the wood with a sponge brush. Pre-stain conditioner helps the stain spread evenly so you’re less likely to get blotches and wood grain reversal. Dip your sponge brush into the conditioner, and spread it over every exposed area of the piece of wood. Make sure the entire piece of pine has an even coat of the conditioner.  X Research source

So you just put one coat of shellac and let it dry. And then do you sand before you stain? Or does it matter? And then you stain, let it dry, and then topcoat with several coats of poly. Is that right? Any other steps that you would add in there? I think it works because I used so little wax on it. After waxing, the wood still felt really dry, like it would soak up just about anything I put on it (stain, poly, Waterlox, etc.) Had I used enough wax, or several coats of wax, to where the wood actually felt waxy or coated, it would have been too much. But just the absolute thinnest of coats of wax seemed to be enough to seal the wood to the point where the grain wouldn’t soak up the stain in a crazy way, but not seal it so much that the wood was too saturated with wax to soak up stain.Awful. Both of them. The funny thing is that the Select Pine sample actually looks like someone did a faux bois technique on it. That grain almost looks fake to me…but it’s real. It’s crazy pine grain! Brush 2 layers of polyurethane clear coat onto the pine. Stir your polyurethane to make sure it’s properly mixed. Dip a bristle brush into the clear coat and apply the polyurethane in a thin layer using long, broad strokes. Make sure you coat the entire surface of the wood to seal it. Give the polyurethane a day to dry completely before applying a second coat.

Are you ready to turn your pinewood project into a masterpiece? Read on and by the end of this tutorial, you’ll be ready to stain pine like a pro. What You Will Need To Follow This Tutorial The more you let the steel wool and vinegar solution age, the darker colors you will get (the solution can be stored for a full year). 2 – Look for wood stain test samples I’m going to finish my floors with a couple coats of paint BASE for an invisible, water proof matte finish. Rustic floors are one thing, but I get what you mean about a rustic table!
That was actually part of the reason I used it over the paint. I do not have a good hand with poly, either spraying or brushing. I knew if I tried just poly, I’d end-up with drips or bubbles or something. Also, I was painting something red…which refuses to harden on its own for months because there’s something about drying time with red tinting, and I wanted a harder finish over it. But I’ve tried that method with light and medium-toned stains on pine, and it just doesn’t work. No matter how much wood conditioner, or how many coats of medium or light stain I use, that awful grain is still there…and accented in a way that I don’t find pretty at all. So yesterday, I tried out some different methods to see what I could come up with, and I actually think I found a way to stain pine a gorgeous medium-toned brown color that looks somewhat aged, while minimizing all of that yellow and orange grain! Perfect! Thank you so much! I will stay tuned! We don’t plan to start building our home until next summer so obviously much more time before floors go down. We’ve had several friends rip plywood and use, but like you said- THE GRAIN!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I want the feel of a cozy, warm, not brand new house. I would love the color of this table you’ve done to be how the floors look. Slightly weathered and matte.
