A black wood stain is the best way to make a wood counter, and it comes in all shapes and sizes.
Here’s how to put it to work.1.
Add stain to the surface.
Using a stain like white paint, or a darker brown, is easiest.
You can also use a spray-on adhesive like spray-proof clear glue.2.
Apply to a surface.
To apply the stain, start by gently rubbing the stain onto the surface with a clean, dry cloth.
After the stain has dried, you can rub the stain away with a damp cloth or cloth towel.3.
Paint it black.
To add the stain to a black wood desk top, first rub the surface lightly with a white paintbrush.
After a few minutes, apply the white paint to the entire surface with an angled brush.
The finish will be glossy, like a glossy white stain.4.
Apply stain to wood counter top.
The most effective method for adding a stain to an unfinished wood surface is with a wet, dry, angled brush or paintbrush, like spray paint.
The angle makes it easier to apply the finish without scratching the wood.5.
Stain on a surface that will hold up.
If you don’t want to use stain, you could use a stain mat to cover a surface like the floor or ceiling.
You could also use some adhesive to stick to the wood to hold it up.6.
Add wood stain to your desk top.
Start by painting a black stain onto a surface you already have.
You might want to go a little deeper with the stain if the wood is not finished.
For example, if you want to add a little more gloss to the stain.
You will need to use the same technique for a darker stain.
