The satin color of the Farmhouse table is a type of finish for wood that helps prevent a farmhouse table from becoming even more worn out. In addition, the finish adds beauty to the table and improves its overall appearance. Brands such as Minwax, Rust-Oleum and TotalBoat are popular for making the best satin wood finishes. When finishing the tables, we usually apply up to 5 or 6 coats of Tung oil.
We also hand sanded the finish between each layer. It is a process because each application of the oil takes about 24 hours to dry. However, the results are worth it. Polyurethane varnish is the fastest and easiest way to finish a kitchen table.
Most of them flow well when brushed and leave few, if any, marks. While it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully, properly finishing a kitchen table generally requires two to four coats of varnish.
