I should have been doing this:
Why is it that I'm always looking for something besides housework to do? Maybe it's because I get tired of doing the same things over and over! (my apologies to those readers who cringe at the sight of this mess (April & Mer))
Since, on some days, I will do almost anything to avoid the mundane and routine, I decided to work on this:
This is a leg of our dining room table. When Joel's grandmother passed away a couple of years ago, this table and hutch set of hers was passed to us. It is very worn and damaged by its years of use. I don't have the energy or skills to refinish it. Nor do I have the budget to hire out the job. So I did the next best thing.
I used Old English Scratch Remover. I love this stuff! It's no magic potion, but it sure makes damaged furniture look better. Granted, this table has some pretty extensive damage to its finish and this did not solve the problem. But, it made it helped minimize the contrast between the finish and the wood underneath.
Here are the legs after I gave them a good coat of Old English. Isn't this a beautiful table? (Try to ignore the computer on it...my hubby is reprogramming it for use at the church). It looks like I should have been dusting and mopping the floor, too...another mundane and routine task....
