This easy DIY Stained Clock Tower is the perfect way to take an old piece and make it new! My family and I recently moved and I was wanting to give some of my furniture a new make over. I have had this clock tower for over 15 years and I was ready to stain it to match my other living room furniture. I am in love with it and it cost me under $10 to do it!
DIY Stained Clock Tower
Supplies: Wood furniture, pint of gel stain, sponge brush and sand paper
Start by gently sanding all edges. You just want to remove any debris or any thing that may be sticking out.
Once done you can start applying thin layers of the gel stain on the wood. I start from the top and make my way down to the bottom, to keep the lines smooth. I can not say enough that you want to do thin layers. You can always add more, but when you use too much it will dry that way.
You will need to allow 24 hours to dry into between layers. I only did two layers and was happy with how it looked.
