How to use perfect finish interior varnish

This varnish is perfect for interior wood but not floors. If you’d like to varnish your floor, our Perfect Finish Diamond Hard Floor Varnish will do the job. It’s also not suitable for painted wood – you’ll have to remove that paint before you begin varnishing.

Before you start

Make sure your room is warm and well ventilated. Open a door or window if you need to and don’t forget to wear a mask when you’re sanding wood!

How to prepare wood for varnishing

  1. Use white spirit and a cloth to wipe down your surfaces and remove any oil, grease and wax.
  2. Give the surface a quick sand using 120 grit sandpaper to remove any rough patches. If your wood was previously painted or varnished, sand away any flaking or peeling bits.
  3. Let the dust settle and wipe it away with a damp cloth.
  4. Leave the wood to dry.


  1. Assemble the pad as instructed on the lid.
  2. Give the varnish a good stir to ensure the consistency is nice and smooth.
  3. Load up your pad with varnish and remove the excess by wiping it on the side of the tub.
  4. Apply an even layer of varnish going in the direction of the woodgrain.
  5. Wait one hour for the first coat to dry before applying a second.
  6. If you’re happy with how it looks after two coats, you can stop there. Otherwise wait an hour and apply the third.
  7. Before you apply your final coat, give the wood a quick sand and wipe down the dust down with a damp cloth. This will give you a really good final finish.



Once your varnish is dry, you can look after your wood as normal. The application pad can just be cleaned in warm soapy water.


Our diamond hard protection means that your wood can withstand everyday knocks, scuffs and scratches so it’s unlikely you’ll have to repair it.

But if you do notice a damaged section of your varnish, don’t worry, it’s easy to fix. Simply sand down the section that needs repairing and add a couple of coats of the varnish, following the same steps we’ve talked about above.
