Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we will be staining our dressers. First we need to blow off our drawers and our project and make sure that there's no loose dust on them. This is going to make the stain go on a little bit better. I'm going to be applying my stain with an old rag and I'm actually going to start with my inside of my drawers and I'm just going to make sure that there's a pretty thick coat of stain, cause I want this to be a little bit darker, you want to make sure you get in every edge of your drawer. Once the inside of your drawer has been stain we're going ahead and let that sit for about 5 minutes and then we're going to come back and wipe off any access stain. After the inside of our drawers have been stain we're going to continue that same procedure with the outside of our drawers. And then with the outside of our dresser, now you might notice that I have not stained the inside of my dresser primarily this is because nobody is going to see it. The drawers are going to be in there and you won't be able to see past the drawers even once you pulled them out. If you want to stain the inside that is just fine.
