Transform a timber bed frame with a beautiful blue hue
What you'll need
Create a smooth surface
- Sand the timber with 240 grit sandpaper using the electric sander. A smooth surface ensures an even stain and the best looking finish.
- Make sure to wipe away any sanding dust before you coat.
- Thoroughly stir Liming White with the flat blade stirrer.
- Pour the desired amount of Liming White into the tray or container.
- Time to add Prooftint in Black. Tip: Start off by adding a small amount, less than what you think you'll need.
- Continue to add more Prooftint until you achieve your desired hue - We call this shade Plover! Remember to not exceed 5% Prooftint to Liming White.
Coat your timber
- Using a brush, apply the Liming White and Prooftint solution in the direction of the timber grain.
- Allow the mix to sit for up to 5 minutes before wiping away the excess stain with a clean cloth.
- Leave to dry for an hour before applying a second coat.
- Once your second coat is dry, apply a protective coat of Clear Varnish in Matt to seal in the beautiful colour.
