Staining Hardwood Stairs


Is the wood raw,new unfinished?

If so---sand it 220 grit--scrape the corners with a cabinet scraper--then stain with a wood stain like Minwax or Varathane---wipe off excess before it dries--
Let it dry for 12 hours if you are using an oil based Polly --24 if you use a water based poly--
