Lori’s 1880 Rocking Chair Refinishing Project | House on Wren

“We have a child’s rocking chair that’s been in the family since my 5th great-grandfather made it in 1880. I decided to restore it, and after I removed the paint, I loved the natural wood. I knew Ann does a lot of furniture refinishing, so I asked her what to do next. She suggested I use Howard’s Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax wood polish and conditioner. I love how it brought the wood back to life again!” ~ Lori

Inspired by the How to Refinish a Wood Table in Less Than 1 Hour post.

Lisa’s Thrifted Red Garden Box

My friend Lisa introduced me to Chandler & Co Barn Sales in Berwick, Maine. There, she found this red garden-inspired vintage box. Now, you see, Lisa loves her retro and modern decor style, but this vintage red garden box looked brilliant on her outdoor patio. An eclectic decor mix for the win here!
