So let's get started so first off. I use this heavy-duty stripper and I applied a generous amount of this to the table to the legs and the sides of the table and you're gonna. Let this sit for about 15 minutes before we're gonna remove it. Oh and make sure to have gloves on, of course, and I used a bristle brush so next, I used a plastic scraper to remove the old stain. You just want to scrape it off and you want to make sure to go with the grain of the wood because if I go diagonally or any other way against the grain, it's gonna scratch. The table, of course, so make sure to go with the grain and use a plastic scraper.
So after the majority of the stain has been removed, you can see that there's still patches of stain left. So I went back with my heavy duty stripper applied. It to only those areas - and I'm gonna use a steel wool that I got from Lowe's. I have it written in the description box, the type that I use and you want to go with the grain of the wood and just gently, scrape that remaining stain out until all the stain has been removed from the tabletop. I did the same thing on the sides of the table.
I'm just applying more of that stripper and I'm going with my steel wool and removing it and scrubbing it out pretty much so next I applied lacquer thinner to a cloth and I wipe down the entire Tabletop with it, the sides of the table and the legs at the table, so the lacquer, thinner and just deactivates that heavy duty stripper that you had applied before and it's just gonna make sure that the new stain you're about to apply is gonna Adhere to the table top so next I use my 220 grit sandpaper and going in the direction of the grain of the wood. I sand it down the tabletop. Next, I applied the pre-stain conditioner using my foam brush to the table top and you're gonna.
Let this sit for anywhere between 5 to 15 minutes and we're gonna wipe it off wipe off whatever didn't get absorbed into the wood, with our cloth later on. So next the color I picked for the table is dark walnut and I'm just using my foam brush and applying a coat of it one coat to one section of the table, so you can leave this stain anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes and then you can Wipe it off. I only left it on for about 6 minutes, because I'd never worked with this color before I didn't know how dark it was gonna be so after about 6 minutes, I wiped it off using a cloth.
I'm going in the direction of the grain of The wood and just wipe off any of the excess stains so when you're working with stain a little tip just make sure you stir the can every few minutes or so because the color does tend to settle at the bottom and by stirring it you're gonna Get, of course, that uniform color that you're looking for so be sure to do that.
