This poor buffet came from England on a ship in the early 1900's and lived in Baltimore for a long time before being transported via truck to Colorado.
The years have just not been kind to it. It has been loved.
At least once every couple of months I attempt to clean it up and bring it back to its former glory.
Liquid Gold is my secret.
The buffet has many scratches, scrapes, gouges and burns on it. I have no idea how the burn marks got on the poor thing. You can see a large scratch in the picture above. While this does NOT fill in deep scratch marks, it does make them less noticeable. I need to get a wood pen that is the same dark color as the buffet and color those in but in the meantime, this works really well.
To clean your furniture you will need:
1. Liquid Gold Wood restorer and cleaner
2. A soft rag or a couple of paper towels
Here are your results:
Now, I need to tell you that this Liquid Gold is oily, really oily. You don't need much.
I rub in the direction of the wood grain for best results.
The weekend is coming! I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend. I am going to try to do some spray painting that I haven't been able to do yet because it has either been too cold or too windy. This weekend looks warm and not too windy so I hope to get the spray painting project done. I also am going to take down my St. Patrick's Day decorations (I don't have much) and clean and decorate for spring. I may even put my Easter things out, not sure yet.
Mr. Soot is coming to our house on Friday to clean our chimney. I hope he has an English accent just makes me think of Bert from Mary Poppins! I'll let you know all about that on Tuesday!
Have a great weekend.
