How to use Howard Restor-A-Finish on the Outside of Your Furniture. #TuesdayTipsWithFallon


I’ve mentioned before that Howard Restor-A-Finish is great for bringing the inside of you wooden furniture back to life, but it’s also great for restoring the outside of your furniture!


I love to use Howard Restor-A-Finish on the legs and top of my furniture, or really any areas where I would typically use a stain.  If the wood seems to be pretty dry, this is a great option instead of using stain because it tends to even out well and not cause blotchy spots to appear.  This product helps restore the original finish while also getting rid of any blemishes or minor scratches.

What I love about it is that you do not have to remove the previous stain if you don’t want to.  I did, however, remove the previous stain on these legs because the previous finish was peeling off. 

You can apply Howard Restor-A-Finish with a shop towel, foam brush or steel wool.  About 30 minutes after the finish has dried, you will want to apply Howard’s Feed and Wax to protect it.  This brings out a beautiful sheen and shines up the area a little bit.  It also helps protect and maintain the finish.  Just make sure you do not put a poly on it because it will pull the finish off.

Howard Restor-A-Finish comes in many different colors. I used Mahogany on this particular piece but they also offer: Neutral, Maple-Pine, Golden Oak, Cherry, Walnut, Dark Walnut and Ebony Brown.
