Creating a Home Office for Two

Uploaded

Making extra workspace in your home can be a challenge, especially when your partner needs a work area as well. Theresa and Mark Clement found a great unfinished armoire with some nice features that will serve as a simple, condensed home office for use in limited space. Now, that armoire needs a coat of stain to last a lifetime. After some thought, Theresa and Mark settled on Minwax® PolyShades® Mission Oak with a Satin finish. Since PolyShades® is a combination wood stain and protective polyeurethane finish, it saves time by giving them the color they want with the durability to last a lifetime. The first step is to sand down the unfinished armoire and apply Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to ensure that the wood will absorb the PolyShades® evenly. Before moving on to apply the PolyShades® stain, be sure to grab a high-quality bristle brush and test a small patch in the inside corner to make sure the color looks the way you'd imagined.
