Lacquered wood staircase: undercoat

Before starting, apply a white acrylic undercoat. Let dry for about 3 hours and sand to make your surface smooth. Don’t hesitate to use a damp cloth or a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust.

Lacquered wood staircases must be dry and spotlessly clean before applying the lacquer. Sand well to remove all the previous finishes. If the stairs have an existing finish or the wood is rough, you may need to use an orbital sander to remove the finish and smooth the wood. Repair any defects or cracks in the wood. Carry out a final sanding of the steps with fine sandpaper (000). The presence of dust will ruin the varnish, so vacuum the steps thoroughly to remove the dust from the sanding. Once the steps are clean and smooth, with the lacquer roller, apply a first coat to the flat parts, extending it as far as possible. The goal is to obtain the finest possible layer.

Let dry for 12 to 24 hours according to the instructions from the manufacturer. Sand this layer with very fine sandpaper and dust. Apply a second coat of undiluted lacquer, always in the finest possible layer.

Finally, smooth the entire surface from top to bottom with the spalter. A third coat may be required. In this case, repeat the last steps. Let dry for one week before putting anything on the lacquered steps.
