Question about Varathane worn navy stain
Lina Splichal on May 14, 2018I suggest you apply the stain with a sponge roller on the back side (inside where it won't be seen) of a piece of the wood and letting it sit. Then wipe off small sections at intervals of 2 minutes until you get the coverage you like. I suspect you will need it to set at least 7 minutes. If you cannot get the deep color you want in this way, you can just apply the stain and wait for it to dry before sealing. Good luck.Helpful Reply
Sharon on May 14, 2018Did you ever strip those chairs? cause those old office chairs are pretty impregnated with top coat. And I would sure take my new upholstry off, so you can stain the wood without ruining your new fabric. Once your sure there is no finish left on the chair then stain and let it sit till you get the depth of color you want. Then spray with a spar varnish top coat when dry.Helpful Reply
William on May 14, 2018Those chairs are impregnated with a silicone sealant. Absorbs deep into the grain. Painting will work, but trying to stain an already stained item won't work. It does not absorb. You can use a gel stain which basically stays more on the surface.Helpful Reply
Louise on May 14, 2018I know very little about stain. I'll look into a gel stain.Helpful Reply
