Some types of wood floors and wood furniture are manufactured from very white or bright woods. If you want to change the design of the room, very white may not work well with the new look you have in mind. You can easily change the colour of your wooden floors to a more suitable colour. Light walnut wood stain is one of the most popular wood stains from Tover. It darkens up the wood without creating very dull or dark finishes. Light Walnut Wood Stain works very well on pine floors.
Light Walnut Wood Stain - Where to use
Tover Light Walnut Wood Stain was designed for internal use but it can also be used for staining garden furniture if it gets sealed with an exterior varnish/lacquer. When used inside it can be used for staining sculptures, worktops, wood floors, chairs, furniture, woodwork, frames, doors, etc. In most cases 1 coat will do the job but in some cases 2 coats can be applied to achieve a richer colour. The wood stain will not react with UV light and it is compatible with most solvent based lacquers or two pack water based floor finishes.
Light Walnut Wood Stain - How to use
First of all you need to make sure that the surface that you plan to stain is clean, dry and sealant free. If there is a sealant on the surface, you will need to sand it up with fine sandpaper until the wood has no more sealer on it. Then you can start the process of applying the wood stain.
Shake the tin well before use to even up the colour
Put on a pair of latex, rubber or nitrile gloves
Take a cloth and soak it in stain (avoid drips on the floor)
Start applying the stain around the edges and all hard to reach areas
Apply the stain evenly going along the fibre of the wood, put pressure on the cloth
You can use a cloth for small areas or a buffer & a pad for larger floors
If some areas look darker than others, rub the cloth a few more times to remove excess stain
Wait 3-5 hours for the stain to dry and then seal it (the wood stain is only a colour
Job done. You can use a matt, semi gloss or a glossy floor finish. It is a personal preference.
Light Walnut Wood Stain - Coverage
The manufacturers recommend 20 sq meters per 1L but the final coverage area will vary from job to job. Fine sanded hardwood floors are likely to absorb less while porous soft wood surfaces are likely to absorb more wood stain. Always prepare more than you need just in case. If you plan to stain 30 sq meters of floor, order 2 tins x 1L just to have enough. Whatever is left you can use in the future to repair damage on the floor.
