Refinish Wood Furniture, a Rewarding DIY Hobby

Sep 7th

Refinish Wood Furniture – I always enjoy working with wood and refinishing wood furniture. Wood is a material that is relatively easy to use, and quite forgiving – and the results can be improved / restored can be very impressive. My earliest projects were in high school, coffee trees and the like. So, it looks like a natural progression as I leave school and work opportunities appear at the local French polish factory. It was there that I completed my trade and studied all aspects of the furniture restoration and refinishing industry. I was lucky because I had all the tools I needed at my fingertips – thus giving me a great understanding of what can be achieved in a commercial environment, but just as important as what can be done in a home environment – often with just a few basic tools.

Refinish wood furniture to your home can add something definite – and is a source of pride when the piece is restored with your own hands. Like all the furniture, all tastes are different and fit with different interior designs. The trick is to work out exactly what your tastes are – and combining the pieces becomes functional and pleasing to the eye. One important thing to remember when decorating wooden furniture to decorate your home is that while having the option of using natural dye dyes, there is also the availability of various stains to dye the pieces to suit your room and home.

First, you need a project. It can be an already owned item (requires some TLC), or can be obtained by a number of sources – try garage sales / local pages; thrift store or charity; classified ads or even online through a number of secret sites and auctions. Important note here – from small (where I mean relatively easy restoration). It may be something as simple as lightweight sand and refinish, or it could include some minor improvements (reattach some loose connections). As mentioned earlier, the wood is quite forgiving and some nice old-fashioned sand paper and some elbow grease can take care of the strange mistake. That’s the article about refinish wood furniture.
