Treat the surface of your shelves with Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to help prevent streaks and blotches. Wait five to 15 minutes, and then wipe away any excess.
Stain your shelves. For this project, a mixture of Minwax® Wood Finish™ Penetrating Stain in Ebony and Minwax® Wood Finish Penetrating Stain™ in Dark Walnut was used. The first coat is Ebony and the second coat is Walnut.
Once staining is complete, wait five to 15 minutes and wipe off any excess. The longer you wait, the darker/richer the color.
After four to six hours, apply topcoat using Minwax® Polycrylic™ Protective Finish.
Dispose of any rags properly – soak, air-dry flat outdoors and toss.
