A while ago we received the following question
"I am having new stair spindles, handrail and base rail. I would like to use oil to stain it light oak.
What is the best method and materials to do this?"
We have various colour oils (thin oils):
Make sure the wood is clean and grease free (and dry), then apply one coat - with a brush or non-fluffy cloth. If needed you can apply a second coat (after 8 hours drying time)
The oil we mentioned is - strangely enough - Colour Wax Classic. It is truly a thin oil, and so very easy to apply. On unfinished wood it takes only one coat in the stain of your choice to give it a completely different look.
And there are 16 colour to choose from!
Not just stair furniture, but all kinds of (unfinished) wooden furniture can be treated with Saicos Colour Wax - it's turning into a real craze in The Netherlands to "personalise" Ikea wooden furniture. Some even sand down a pre-finished piece of furniture to add their own colour. Or, as they call it, to "pimp" it up.
Various examples of this new trend can be found online, just search
"pimp Ikea furniture" or follow this link for an enormous quantity of pictures. And of course, this applies to all kind of wooden furniture, not just from our Scandinavian "friends".
As with all Saicos products, this one is easy to apply with a brush or a non-fluffy cloth. Plus it is made of natural ingredients - so eco-friendly too.
Go on, have a "splash"
