Kelly Oakey transforms some well-loved bedside tables
What you'll need
Start with a good clean and sand
- Ensure your bedside tables are clean and free of any dust or debris.
- Remove any hardware or knobs and set aside. If you want to protect certain areas from staining, use painter's tape to mask them off.
- To achieve a smooth finish, lightly sand the surfaces of your bedside tables. Start with a coarse-grit sandpaper (around 80-100 grit) to remove any existing finish or imperfections. Then, gradually work your way up to a finer grit (around 220-300) to create a smooth, even surface. Be sure to wipe away any dust with a clean cloth.
Applying Feast Watson Stain & Varnish
- Stir Feast Watson Stain & Varnish Liming White thoroughly, making sure the white wood stain is well-mixed.
- Using a clean paintbrush, apply a thin and even coat of the Liming White stain to your bedside tables. Work in the direction of the wood grain for the best results. Allow this first coat to dry for 2 hours.
- Lightly sand the surface with a fine-grit sandpaper (around 220-300 grit) to smooth out any raised wood fibres. Wipe away any dust with a clean, lint-free cloth.
- Repeat the application and sanding process for additional coats until you achieve your desired look. This may typically require 2-3 coats, but you can add more if you want a more opaque finish. Be sure to allow each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next.
- Once completely dry, reattach any hardware or knobs you removed earlier. Your transformed bedside tables are now ready to be placed back in your bedroom.
