This mahogany end table sat in my parent's garage for years, gathering
dust and cob webs. They were thrilled when I asked them if I could
take it to refinish. It didn't look like much to me, but Dad assured
me that it was a fine piece of furniture and well worth the effort.
I learned that the table had belonged to my great-aunt Elizabeth
and it was at least 100 years old. I'd never refinished anything
before, but considering the poor condition that it was in, what
did I have to lose?
I used all Formby's® products to do the job. I started with
Formby's® Furniture Refinisher. I was amazed at how quickly
the old finish dissolved. It seemed as though I was done in no time
at all. And thanks to Formby's® Refinisher, the wood's beautiful
patina remained unharmed.
I finished the table with three coats of Formby's® Low-Gloss
Tung Oil. Dad was right. The table is a wonderful mahogany and it
looks beautiful in my home.
