I am refinishing pine stair treads that were previously painted.
I stripped the paint, will sand and want to stain the treads a cherry
color to match my hardwood floors.
As I used a paint remover called Oops to remove the paint, is there
anything else I should use prior to staining the sanded wood to insure
even stain coverage?
What is the best (durable) clear finish to use after staining?
I plan to use rubber treads to cover the center of the finished treads.
Thanks for your help!
Water-based polyurethane won't yellow, doesn't stink up the place,
dries far faster and will enable you to put on more coats in a shorter
period of time than oil-based polyurethane.
I've never seen rubber treads on a nicely finished wood stair. The
runners, if any, are almost always carpet or a rug-type runner. Won't
the rubber be a rather harsh contrast to the beautifully finished wood?
