If getting the sides or your angles just right seems a bit difficult, wearing a rubber glove, you can use a finger to apply and cover any tricky areas, as it was done when covering this table. We suggest making the tricky areas before the final layer on top, so you don’t need to focus on these when you’re ready for the most important part, the aesthetics.
When you are happy with the look, you leave it for a couple of hours while drying. When it is fully dried you can start sanding, so it becomes smooth as silk before applying the varnish. In this case, we have chosen a varnish
instead of DETALE Topcoat, as the Topcoat absorbs into the surface whereas a varnish covers the surface as a membrane which is ideal on a horizontal surface exposed to wear and tear. We have chosen a matte varnish to keep the natural look, but if you want a shiny look you can easily choose another level of gloss.
