Obelisk and Finials

I've been working on redoing a couple of things and thought I'd share one of the projects. (Yes, I changed the header back to this pic. lol  Just think it is me.)

 I love Finials and Obelisks.  I have a really small collection.  This finial is wood and needed a little something.  That's not dust, it's that gray whatever they put on some things to give them an aged look and it doesn't come off.  However that's not what bothered me.  It just looked a little flat and needed some bling.

 Out came the good ole' Rub 'n Buff.  This stuff works wonders on all kinds of things.

 Just a touch here and there to highlight the carved detail.  Now it seems to have more personality.

 Mixed in with some others I have, it now holds it's own.  I'll show you the rest later, I have a little more tweaking to do.

Hope you're all having a super Friday.  I'm working on a couple more tweaks.  Can't wait to show you.


  1. Marty, thanks for showing that product as I have a bust of Minerva that needs tweaking just like your finial. The finial tweaked perfectly by the way. ♥O

  2. The gold makes a big difference, Marty! It really does look so much better now! I love your white one - is that considered a pineapple or an acorn? I'm not sure with the leaves {but I was thinking acorn at first}. We are supposed to have a rainy weekend here, so I may wind up doing some playing myself!

  3. What a great difference that made! I turned out wonderful!

  4. I love it when you can change the look of something with just a few minor adjustments. Love what you did.

  5. Looks great Marty! Can't wait to see the rest after final tweaks!

  6. Looks GREAT!! Amazing how it made a big difference. :)

  7. Well, that's a useful looks so much better now. I love finials, so I can't wait to see more.

  8. Hi Marty!
    You sure tweaked the finials really good! Love them. I'm going to have to try some of the rub and buff.


  9. Love the after look! Can hardly wait to see the rest!

  10. I agree... can't wait to see what is next here!

  11. I'm hooked. I can't wait to see what's next.
