Staining or painting your pine furniture is simple. Follow these easy steps to ensure a smooth, even finish every time!

1. Clean wood surface, and sand with fine
    sand paper if needed.

2. Use a brush if you are applying paint, 
    but use a clean, dry cloth if you are
    applying a Miniwax stain. Apply 
    multiple  coats if you prefer a darker
    color.

3. Apply paint or stain small sections at a
    time and allow at least 8 hours to dry
    between coats.

4. Have fun!

Consult your local hardware or paint store for the best paint and other finish advice for your climate.
