Rubbing it in

My friend and I rubbed and reminisced as we worked on this old auction find. Good therapy and the blanket box revealed a blue stain hidden in the depths of the very weathered wood.

I am familiar with paste wax on floors but I'd never thought to use it on furniture. I'll definitely be waxing furniture from now on.

We are back to hot which worked well for washing down the veranda. I'll be touching up the walls with some leftover paint.

Stunning find. I can see it at the bottom of a bed. What a great way to polish the piece. Yep, I've used that same wax for wood.

This is a wonderful find. This box just has character and charm. I have never waxed old furniture but have certainly heard it is wonderful for the patina. Happy painting today.
