Reduce, Reuse, Refinish

Trying to figure out what to do with that old piece of furniture that you love so much? You know, the one that's seen its better days? Yep, that's the one! How about refinishing it in an eco-friendly fashion? It's a fact that, on the whole, furniture was more well made 20 years ago. There's a reason those priceless antiques are still around. It's because they were made to hang in there, come what may.

This is great! I've been considering refinishing a desk and chair, and this gives me a great little push to go find some supplies to do so.

Thank you so much. I have always avoided refinishing because it was so dangerous to me and the environ. I have always opted for painting!
