Well done Hackytza!

I am seriously impressed you could make a living out of bringing new life to furniture. You did a lovely job of your children's bedrooms, the marble effect table and fire surround and now this! How do you find the time?

Take a bow!

Hello Coby,
I have used satin clear varnish. I have never used waxed as I am not really familliar with it and I have never restored furniture in my life before last year when I started collecting furniture for our house; So - I don't know if varnish is better than wax or the other way around :-)

Hi again coby12,

If you want it really shiny - you will probably have to use gloss clear varnish, and not satin. Mine is not as shiny as it looks in the photos. Is just that the sun is shining straight on it in the morning and that's when I took the photos.
Regards. :-)

Thanks for info, just sat down after finishing waxing another door, I think I will stick with the wax, because it does not drip everywhere, just hard work polishing after wax has dried in.

Hey coby, don't forget to show off the results on the forum.:-)

Thanks everybody again for all the good words - it's really a great encouragement to keep going and start a new project.
