I’m an absolute begginner when it comes to painting wood and have read plenty of Blogs the past 24hrs with regards to finishing, staining, conditioning, sandsealing etc, but there are too many opinions to find 1 solution.
I’ve spent 3 months building a base bed with Oregon pine and don’t want to mess it up at the end, thus would like some expert and experienced advice.
I want to stain the Oregon pine a walnut, maybe even dark walnut colour. I do have a spray gun for painting. I have just finished sanding everything. What now?
Can anyone with experience please give me a step by step indication of what should be the first, second, third and so on coat and what should be used.
Should I rubb it down with alcohol first? Should I use sanding sealer?
Any help would be appreciated.
