|Before (close up)|
|The materials: Sandpaper, painter's tape, stain, polyurethane|
and two paint brushes
|After sanding the threshold to break the finish, wipe the threshold|
with a damp rag and then a dry one
|Place painter's tape on both sides of the threshold, then apply stain|
using a paint brush.
|Use a rag or paper towel to remove the excess stain (follow the instructions|
on the stain can). I applied and wiped off one coat, allowed it to dry and
wasn't thrilled with the color (I wanted it to be darker), so I applied and
wiped off another coat.
|After the stain dried overnight, I applied a coat of polyurethane|
using the second paintbrush and let it completely dry.
|Looking new again!|
