You know how much I like DIY projects that don’t take long, and here is a recent project where I used Restore-A-Finish:

I took pictures of how great it worked when I restored this framed vintage flower print to its former glory. So why not show you?
The wood frame was in need of a little love, and I used my secret weapon — Howard Restor-A-Finish — to make it look all new.
If you have wood furniture or frames with scratches and nicks, you’ll love Restor-A-Finish!
It comes in 9 colors, but I was told to get it in the Dark Walnut color as that works with all medium dark wood colors — it blends right in.
One bottle is so inexpensive and will last you for a long time!
It restores the original color while blending out minor scratches and blemishes like water marks, water rings, and sun fading marks.
There is no need to strip and refinish or repaint the wood, which can take hours or days depending on the project.
Restoring Wood With Howard’s Restor-A-Finish in Minutes
This print was a tag sale find, and I almost passed on it because it needed some work.
As you can see, the frame was pretty banged up. This was a good spot to use for a before-and-after photos.
The print had detached from the picture mat and needed to be straightened, so I first had to remove all of the little nails that were holding the print in place with pliers.
The print had discolorations from where the matte had been, plus stains from tape that had been used to hold it in place for many years. I was able to remove some of those stains with a magic eraser.
That’s another trick I want to share: I have been able to get all kinds of stains off vintage china with the help of the Magic Eraser.
Then I put some Restor-A-Finish on a rag and rubbed it on the wood frame. Make sure not to tip over the bottle as it will stain.
The results are immediate: see how much better this spot looks?
All of the woods gets treated, and the scratches and nicks now blend in.
I personally don’t mind those marks now that they have the same color — it adds to the vintage charm.
After I carefully cleaned the glass, I taped the print to the mat, put it back into the frame, and nailed the little nails back in place.
I wasn’t able to get rid of the brown stain on the print on the left, and there was nothing I could do about the discoloration on the bottom, but it looked so much better.
I’m glad I gave this pretty floral print 10 minutes of my time, and I ended up selling it for $40 at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium to a young woman who wanted it for her bedroom.
Pin this for later!
