One of the most underestimated components of DIY refinishing and refurbishing is waxing. While the paint, plaster, sanding, and sealing are all important, waxing is a finishing technique you can use to take your pieces to the next level. Waxing does not have to be just for protection, either! It can add a layer of color and texture that no other material can provide to your piece. It also can highlight the depth and design of your furniture, wall decor, wood features, and more! Best of all, it gives an Old World look to any piece -- a look that cannot be replicated in the same way with other techniques.
