How to Restore Old Furniture
Old furniture can be easily and quickly brought back into use with Libéron products. Here, this old wash stand was lying around unloved but with a bit of care and work it was restored to its original beauty.
To complete this simple wood care task, you will need the following products:
- Ultra Fine Steel Wool Grade 0000
- Brass & Copper Cleaner
- Retouch Crayon in matching colour
- Wax & Polish Remover
- Wax Polish Black Bison clear
Step One – Cleaning
Firstly, the metal handles and brackets were cleaned with Brass & Copper Cleaner and some Ultra Fine Steel Wool (Grade 0000).
Step Two – Repair
The next step is to fill any gaps, cracks or damaged areas with a Retouch Crayon. Simply work into the damaged area and allow to dry, then smooth with some very fine sandpaper.
Step Three – Remove old wax
Before finishing the wood with wax it is important to remove any old dirty and worn wax finishes with Wax & Polish Remover. This will leave the wood nice and clean and ensure a good key for the new finish.
Step Four – Apply new coats of wax
Lastly apply a thin coat of Wax Polish Black Bison to the wood with some Ultra Fine Steel Wool (Grade 0000), allow to dry and then buff to a sheen.
