Upcycling and restoring weathered timber furniture doesn’t have to be time consuming or hard work. In a weekend, the Sikkens range of cleaners and stains enables DIYers to complete simple projects with outstanding results. From tables and chairs to gates and fences, Sikkens Cetol BLX-Pro is ideal for the time-poor weekend warrior. This water-based finish allows re-coating within two hours compared to oil-based stains that need up to 24 hours. Sikkens Cetol BLX-Pro is a high quality, transparent finish that accentuates the natural character and colour of the timber. Available in five ready mixed stains, it can make anything old look new again.
- Before application, wet the timber to delay drying out during the cleaning process. Extremely hot conditions are not suitable for projects like this.
- Apply Cetol BL Garden Furniture Cleaner [1-litre $30.73] and work it into the timber with a stiff bristled brush and allow to rest for 15 to 30 minutes.
- Wash the residue off with a pressure washer or stiff bristled brush and hose on high pressure.
- When the timber is completely dry, apply a liberal coat of Sikkens Cetol BLX-Pro [1-litre $51.15 in your colour of choice], in the direction of the grain. For best results apply three coats; with two hours between each coat.
