Re: Staining/Sealing Wooden Wainscot in a bathroom
First of all Oak is not white wood. Yes, you will need drywall first to meet code. If you are going to stain use a stain not Minwax stain/sealer and let dry for atleast 24 hours. The coat all 6 sides with the finish. A good oil based varnish such as OldMaster's. If you are going to paint seal with a good stain killer oil based primer and a good paint. Again do all 6 sides.
