Can I Stain the Cheap Wood Particle Board Cabinets in My Bathroom?

Save

Particle board is an inexpensive alternative to traditional wood and is often used in mass-produced furniture. It's possible to stain the cheap particle board in your bathroom, provided you use the right products for the job.

Staining

  • Gently wipe off any dust or dirt accumulated on the surface of the particle board. Apply a coat of wood stain to the particle board and wipe away any excess stain with a dry cloth. Wait for the first coat of stain to dry completely and add additional coats for a deeper and richer look.

Considerations

  • Add a coat of clear stain to the particle board once the stain finishes drying. This protects the color of the wood stain and keeps moisture from seeping into the boards, which can cause swelling or other problems.

Warning

  • Always use a polyurethane stain or an oil-based stain on particle board. This seals the particle board and protects it, unlike other types of stains.
