Deck the Walls with Decorative Letters

Instructions

  1. Sand away any rough areas or old paint and clear the sanding dust with a damp cloth.
  2. When the wood is smooth, apply pre-stain conditioner to help the stain penetrate the wood more evenly. Allow 5-15 minutes for the conditioner to penetrate, then wipe the surface with a lint-free rag.
  3. Stir the stain well (don’t shake the can). Pretest the color in a hidden spot.
  4. Apply the stain in the direction of the wood grain using a natural bristle brush.
  5. Allow stain to completely dry.
  6. While wearing rubber gloves, use a lint-free rag to wipe in the direction of the wood grain, removing excess stain and blending the lighter/darker areas. For a darker color, repeat the application process.
  7. Apply a thin coat of polyurethane topcoat in the direction of the wood grain.
  8. Allow to dry.
  9. Add holiday décor or greenery of your choice.
