Pshemek Wrobel vacuuming before applying the satin floor polyurethane.
We restored a beautiful staircase on a home in Point Piper, Sydney. The existing staircase was varnished timber. A dado panelling of MDF was constructed to line the wall running up the stairs and also the stairwell landings, there were three floors. The dado and spindles were sprayed white Semigloss Enamel Antique White USA, and the railing and treads were stained a black/walnut mixture and a satin polyurethane finish applied.
The critical issues were: clean lines between the black and the white, and to have a beautiful smooth finish on the painted timber and the black treads. The treads were a lot of work as they had been lined in carpet which had been tacked down.
It turned out beautifully, and the client was delighted!
The treads and railings were sanded back to raw timber, stained black and masked.
