Step one

First, put down a dust sheet, then open a window.

Step two

Fill any holes or cracks with our wood filler. Give your wood a good sand with 120 grit sandpaper, so it's smooth. And if it's old, sand off any existing coating. Then wipe down with white spirit, not water or the grain will rise. Then leave it to dry.

Step three

Prep done, you're ready to protect.
