    Q:My granddaughter scratched the top of my antique desk. I believe it is cherry. Not sure which color I would use

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Restor-A-Finish should be used in a color that best matches your finish. If you are uncertain about which color to use, then choose a color slightly lighter than your finish. It’s recommended that you test Restor-A-Finish in an inconspicuous spot to make sure you like what it does and how it matches the finish.

      Q:An old cedar chest top was damaged by a wet cloth. See photo. I tried a really old can of Formby Refinisher in a small area along the left edge & it seems to work well. Will your product work instead of, or after, the Formby's to help with the color?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Restor-A-Finish helps with water marks on wood, so it sounds like it will work for your wood chest. Test it in a small area to make sure you like what it does. Wait 2 weeks for any other products to dry first before using Restor-A-Finish.

        Q:What is what is the best way to apply this and how should you prep the wood before
        by|Jul 3, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Choose the color of Restor-A-Finish that best matches the finish of your wood. Test on an inconspicuous area. Apply with a small pad of cloth, cover a small area at a time and immediately wipe dry. Do not pour directly on finish. To remove stubborn white rings, oxidation, or light scratches, apply Restor-A-Finish with a pad of super fine (0000) steel wool. Finishes vary in hardness, so test pressure to be used with (0000) steel wool on an inconspicuous spot. Rub lightly in the direction of the wood grain until blemish is blended away. Cover a small area at a time and wipe dry. To protect and maintain the newly restored finish, follow up with Howard Feed-N-Wax.

          Saved my antique sewing cabinet
          I was given a 100 year old sewing machine in the original cabinet. The cabinet was in good shape (veneer was smooth) but it looked like bleach or something had been splashed on the legs. This product was recommended to try on it when I went into my local Home Depot. It was AMAZING. The cabinet looks like new (well almost, considering it was from 1926). It was SO fast and easy to use - just wipe it on. I used a Q-tip to get into the grooves and cracks. No strong odor. RECOMMEND!

            Does the job
            I did a few projects. I used wood color markers first and then applied the Howard's product. I'm very happy with the results. The furniture looks so much better now.

              I’m so impressed!
              This product far exceeded my expectations. I used it on my antique vanity that I regrettably, I haven’t been taking care of for the last eight years. I was at a loss for how to restore my vanity to its former glory, and I am so happy I stumbled across Howard’s products. I just followed the instructions on the bottle and I’m elated with the results

                    item was easy to apply and provided a great, clean look to our 20 plus year old kitchen cabinets. Have already recommended it to two friends, one I gave the left over to.

                    Very pleased with the way my G-Grandpa’s desk turned out!
                    Easy to use, quick and inexpensive! I used the fine steel wool and Feed & Wax afterward. Huge return for small effort. Will definitely use this product again.

                      A miracle product. Highly recommend.
                      We found a hundred year old table in my grandmother’s basement and I loved the worn legs/edges, did not want to strip or sand it and lose the distressed look of it or potentially damage the table further (one of the cross braces has a significant crack). I just wiped the table clean and applied a coat of Restor-a-finish. It took an hour or so because of the details on the legs but dried very quickly and came out even more beautiful than I thought it would. My family is amazed too. Highly recommend this product!

                        This is miracle stuff. I had some scuffs and worn spots on my cabinets that were exposed to water in both the bathroom and my kitchen. Just applied with a dry cloth and my cabinets looked brand new. The color is sheer enough to do the job. FYI, I used the Oak color and just purchased the Mahogany for my scratched dresser. I am sure this shade will do the trick too.
