When Feast Watson tasked me with revamping a piece of secondhand timber furniture, I honestly didn’t know if it was possible! While I’ve bought many vintage furniture pieces over the years, I’ve previously called on professionals to have them restored… little did I know the process could be quite this easy!
Armed with Feast Watson’s Scandinavian Oil, I bought a walnut cabinet for $400 in need of some TLC and brought it back to life. This clear product is a penetrating oil, so unlike a cosmetic varnish, it really sinks into the timber, and leaves an elegant satin finish.
Inside the cabinet, I went with Feast Watson’s Prooftint in Black Japan, which is a rich, dark timber stain that provides a great contrast with the walnut exterior.
Feeling inspired, I decided to go the extra mile by sourcing a piece of green marble, and having it cut to size, creating a fancy stone surface for my bar cabinet. This step is totally optional, but I must say I’m pretty impressed with the end results!
