Secret #1: Moisturize your vintage and antique wood!
Sometimes I find a piece that is ‘almost’ perfect. To me, this means it looks good the way it is and I do not want to change the finish of the piece. Shabby Chic is a great way to hide the imperfections of a well loved casegood. Chalk paint will cover up any imperfections and/or make them look like they belong there. Lacquer is also a sought after ‘in the moment’ trend. However, when I want to retain the original look of a piece without the expense of refinishing, I turn to this magic product, Old English Scratch Cover. Old English can be found at almost any hardware store. Take a cloth and apply evenly and generously over your piece. You will be amazed at how great it looks. It is like anti-wrinkle cream that us ‘later in life’ ladies use. Your furniture will thank you!!
