Has your wooden cabinet in the kitchen lost its sheen? Do the wardrobes in the bedroom wear a outdated look? Does the prized artifact, which you proudly show off to your visitors, retain its original shine?
Restoring the look of wooden furniture, art work, and cabinets is easy. You don’t need to hire a painter or the polishing person, or worry about spending thousands on restoration or replacing them. All you need are some dirty clothes, old newspapers and a few hours to spare. Game for it? Then, let’s get started:
If it’s your first project, then start off with something small.
What you’ll need:
1. 1 bottle of Sheenlac wood finish. Available at all hardware stores in different sizes. Suggest buying the 200 ml bottle initially.
2. Old newspapers to spread on the floor.
3. Emery sheet – P150
4. Clean cotton cloth
5. A old bottle
How to Clean:
1. Tear the emery sheet into two halves or about the size of your palm.
2. Sand the surface to be polished with the emery sheet. This ensures all the surface dirt is removed and is clean.
3. Clean the dry powder off the surface with a cloth.
How to Polish:
1. Pour a little of the polish from the Sheenlac bottle into a waste empty bottle.
2. Use the clean cotton cloth to apply the polishing lacquer on to the cleaned surface.
3. Let it dry for 10-15 minutes. Apply one more coat if necessary.
Estimated time for polishing a 2*2 sq ft area : 10 minutes
If you are satisfied with the results, extend it to larger areas.
