Interior Stain Projects

Ready to start your DIY interior stain project? See below steps on how to complete a successful one for your home, no matter how big or small.

For Best Results:
A successful DIY project starts with proper preparation. Start your new stain project by cleaning the surface, which must be dry, clean, and free of dirt, grease, and glue. Continue by lightly sanding the wood and removing all sanding dust – this will help the stain product adhere – and follow up with BEHR® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner to help prevent streaks and blotches.

You are now on your way to a successful stain project that you can be proud of. See the how-to's below for full instructions.
