that she was a prime candidate for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.
Well, I was wrong!
Even though she's only a little veneered darling,
looking at her lovely legs, Art Deco shape and that scrumptious burled veneer,
I thought perhaps this might be a case of
Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil to the rescue.
On the front corner, the veneer had peeled off
and the varnish had yellowed and become patchy.
Hemp Oil provides an amazing protective finish
and my favourite technique (as many of you already know!) is wet-sanding.
Wet-sanding is when you coat the timber in Hemp Oil and
then gently sand the oil into the grain to lift out scrathes, marks, dents, stains, etc...
This process also polishes the timber to a lovely, protective silky smooth sheen.
The finish is baby soft, smooth-as-silk, bringing out the grain
and leaving the timber with a mellow, warm sheen
that is waterproof, heatproof and food safe.
The drawers were given a coat of Hemp Oil to seal and protect
the raw timber then lined with a gorgeous
deco-inspired paper to complement the silhouette using Mod Podge.
Miss Mustard Seed's Tough Coat was used as a topcoat to seal and protect the paper.
and the feet were given a quick coat of bronze metallic paint (coming soon).
Last but not least, our Venetian Glass Knobs were all that was needed
to add the final bling.
and it's become part of my bedroom reno.
