Wood Stool


Trash Bag

Pins or Tape


Paint Brush

Wood Stain

Clean Cloth

Sand the Stool

Wear gloves to protect your hands and use sandpaper or sander to sand down the wood stool. Make sure to sand the entire surface thoroughly to create a smooth base for staining.


Stain the Wood

Once the stool is sanded and dust-free, it’s time to stain. Choose a wood stain that complements your home decor. Apply the stain with a paintbrush, working in the direction of the wood grain. Aim for a smooth, even coat.

Wipe and Dry

After applying the stain, wait about 5-10 minutes, then use a clean cloth to wipe off any excess stain. This will help avoid any uneven spots or drips. Allow the stool to dry for about four hours.


Apply the Topcoat

Apply a topcoat of clear sealer. Let this dry for 24 hours to ensure it sets properly.
