There is something special about wooden furniture and features at home. Wood transcends time, style and even budget, but it needs care in order to keep doing its magic both indoors and outdoors.
Staining any wooden surface such as doors, window frames, claddings, tables, antique wall clocks and even statement timber walls, will protect and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, but it can be a little daunting. With just a bit of prep and a few easy application steps, you will soon be enjoying a stunning new look and feel, but even pros get a little nervous before dipping the paintbrush into the varnish.
Even though it is impossible to predict the final aesthetic without testing the stain on the specific wood type you want to refresh, you should remember that wood is very flexible and even if you make a mistake, it is probably reversible. Of course, it is always best to do everything in our power to get the most professional-looking result possible, as easily (and as mistake-free) as possible and to achieve that we suggest using a high quality water-based woodstain such as AQUAXYL VARNISH by VIVECHROM.

IMPORTANT: keep the following valuable tips in mind, and take your varnishing/staining skills to a completely new level:
- Wet sanding should be used whenever possible when preparing your surface, in order to avoid dust and/or dangerous fumes
- For maximum durability and protection for up to 5 years, make sure the original wood is solid and in good condition, and apply a minimum of 3 coats
- Allow the varnish to dry at temperatures between 10°C to 35°C
