Then varnish them with the V33 wood stain suitable for woodwork protection. With a brush, apply a first coat in the direction of the veins of the wood. To give more cachet to your bedside table, apply a different color for each box. In order for your wooden crates to be uniform, you can wipe off the excess with a cloth. Let it dry for 1 hour.
