As I was cleaning house and moving a few things around, I pulled these candlesticks out and wanted to use them on the dining table. As I looked at them, they really looked a little dull.
The base shows how dry the wood is and most of the lustre is gone from them.
I thought they needed more than just a little polish, so out came one of my favorite things. Old English scratch cover oil.
A little on a soft cloth, rubbed all over and into the wood really well, then buffed off makes such a difference to restore the color and lustre of anything.
On the left is the before and on the right the after. Big difference. The color and grain of the wood is so much more enhanced. Love this stuff.
Now they look perfect for the table. (See that wood against the wall)
It's still all the guitar making parts that my son and grandson are working on. What's a girl to do, I need to stash it somewhere when they're not here using the tools. lol
A mix of faux flowers of all kinds makes a happy arrangement.
If you have something that needs a little attention, I highly recommend the Old English Oil. It comes in dark and natural. Either one is wonderful to feed your wood.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.
