Hi,\n\nNew to this website and diy and need some advice. \n\nMy bay window suffered from condensation and over the years the paint started to bubble and peel as water would pool on the window sill and I want to sort it properly. Ive bought a dehumidifier and the window now doesn’t get any condensation on it. Ive stripped the many layers of white paint on it with the peel away 7 which was recommended to me and sanded it down and it now looks like this.\n\nNow I’m not sure where to go next. I don’t want to paint the sill white again I just want it to look like wood. Probably a dark wood like the windows shown in the picture. \n\nDo I need to sand it more, do I buy a wood stain and do a couple of layers? What wood stain is best for a bay window where there has been condensation problems? Do you have to put something on top of the wood stain to seal the wood? Sorry for all the questions I just want to do it right.
