Tips for Making Old Furniture Look like New

When I got married, my mother passed a family heirloom onto me that was a piece of old, wooden furniture that had been in the family for generations. Since it was showing its age, I decided to see if I could learn how to restore it. Before I worked on it, I decided to practice on a few furniture pieces I grabbed at a second-hand store. I soon learned that restoring old furniture was more difficult than I expected, but I also learned how much I love to do it! I soon fell in love with my new hobby and am always working on a new piece. I know there are people out there who want to learn how to restore furniture, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips and tricks for learning a new hobby. I hope I can help you learn your new craft!
