Steps- Prepare the furniture before waxing it - Choose the wax - Wax a wooden piece of furniture - Apply one or more layers of wax - Polish the wooden piece of furniture
1. Prepare the furniture before waxing itFurniture can only be waxed if it is ready to be waxed. Concretely, this implies that it is clean, of course, but also sanded and pickled if necessary. It is always better to start from a raw and clean surface. Scratches or holes must also have been patched. Before applying the wax, the furniture must be cleaned with acetone or turpentine. From these first steps, remember to ventilate the room where you tinker well, put on gloves and protect your eyes.

2. Choose the wax
3. Wax a wooden piece of furnitureThe application of the wax can be done using a cloth (for a paste wax) or a brush (for a liquid wax). You will not fail to realize it, the brush facilitates the stain for the recesses and moldings of the wooden furniture. In both cases, the principle is the same: you dip the cloth (or brush) in the wax and apply it to the wood in circular movements. At the end, do not hesitate to remove the excess polish with a clean cloth.
4. Apply one or more layers of wax
© So Many Paris Contrary to popular belief, wax must be applied in a thin layer. If you apply it immediately in a thick layer, the result will be unflattering, with a dirty and dull finish. After applying the first layer of wax, wait (at least one hour) and then polish. For each layer, repeat this experience, applying the wax in the direction of the wood fibers. If you are looking for a particularly shiny patina, you will not escape the third layer!
