Making it Old Again (continued)

So where were we? Ah yes, tung oil. So here we are after two coats.

Step 11. Add back the grim, er I mean patina. Apply a brown wax. Wax on, wax off (what ever happened to Ralph Machio anyway?)

Before wax:
After wax:

Step 12. A final coat of clear wax, buff and polish.

And there you have it. Rehab complete and ready to be released back into society.

Well, not totally complete....

M was able to rebuild the broken upper doors this weekend. Now we just need to find a source for some antique glass and start the process all over again.

It looks fabulous, but that last step was three steps. :-) Does it really need doors?

Christine said...

But that would blow my 12 step theme.

No, I don't think it really needs them. Not a project that will be on the top of the priority list. I can barely move my arms now after all that waxing anyway.

Ralph Machio was last seen in a A Good Night to Die with Debbie Harrie, Ally Sheedie, etc. in 2003.

Wax on..............
