How to Restore Wood Furniture

If your wood furniture has seen better days, then this video from our Fix It in 15:00 series should be next in your queue.

Take that dining room table for instance.  Maybe you let that coffee mug sit too long and the heat created moisture underneath leaving behind a nasty ring you just can’t get rid of.  Or maybe your cabinet doors are looking a bit faded as a result of steam created by the constant flow of meal prep.  Whatever the reason, there’s hope yet!

One simple way method to wood furniture restoration is to use a product specifically designed for wood refinishing.  In this demonstration, we’re using a wood amalgamator called Restor A Finish.  Wood finishing products like this one can be found at your local hardware store or online for home delivery.

Another item you’ll need for this project is some steel wool, preferably 0000 aka quadruple zero.  Essentially the more zeroes, the finer the grit of the steel wool.

In addition, you’ll want some rubber gloves (the finishing product is a bit caustic) and safety glasses.

Pour the finishing agent into a small pan.  Dip the steel wool into the pan, and wring it out slightly.  Then press down and slide the steel wool over the damaged wood, going with the grain (this is very important).  Then, just wipe it with a dry, clean cloth and it should look a million percent better!
