Ok, so hitting a good yard sale or flea market and finding great old furniture is such fun. The problem however, is in refinishing that furniture. You certainly don’t want to get an old dresser for a steal and then spend a fortune having it redone. A better way? Why, the DIY way of course. This quick trick comes from the Lily and Thristie from http://lilyandthistle.blogspot.com.
What you need is:
- Olive or Vegetable Oil – About ¾ cup
- White or Apple Cider Vinegar – About ¼ cup
Just mix together and dip a rag into the mixture. Then, just wipe your furniture down with it. This will completely eliminate those nips and make the furniture look nearly new again. And, because the vinegar and oil are not bad for the furniture, you can wipe it down as often as you like. If you have old coffee tables or any other furniture at home that needs a little pick me up, this is a great way to give it a new look again. It makes it very shiny and well-polished and not at all like something that you picked up for pennies at a yard sale.
