Amazing stuff....

I was perusing blogs the other day and came upon this post at Mustard Seed Creations. Great blog! And what a great idea! She suggested using oil and vinegar on tired dried out wood furniture to give it a new life. So....I did. See how dried out the top of the table is in the photo above?

And here is the front of it, poor thing!

Here is the after! All I did is mix a little bit of vinegar into the oil and walaa!

Here is the after on the front. It's like a brand new piece of furniture.

We spent the morning looking at all of our furniture to see what else we could try this on and everything is either not old or has a glossy finish. It won't work with a glossy finish. But as I walked by the trunk 400 times, it finally dawned on me that it would work on this! So here are the "before" shots.

And the after...

Gotta love blog land....never know what you'll learn!


  1. Great idea. I have a treadle sewing machine cabinet that could use this. Will have to try it.

  2. Karen, they still look really good too lol!

  3. Wow! That is amazing. And think how cheap that is to do. Love you Amy. Mom
