Pine is one of the most commonly used woods in furniture making. Refinishing pine requires similar techniques to refinishing any solid wood surface. Before beginning the refinishing process you will need to choose whether to use water-based stain and finish or oil-based products. Water-based finishes and stains have reduced fumes and are easier to clean up. Oil-based products penetrate deeper and provide a richer finish. They are also longer lasting. You will need gloves, ventilation and respirator masks for safety with oil-based products.
Apply at least two coats of clear furniture finish. Clear finishes are available in a variety of sheens from flat to high gloss. Choose a finish that suits the coffee table and complements the rest of your interior. Use a fine bristle brush to apply the finish in smooth, even coats. Be careful not to allow the finish to build up, causing runs and drips. Allow the recommended drying time between coats and after the last coat before using the coffee table.
