Cerused Oak Table Refresh


Hey friends! Did you happen to catch my big news I shared last week? It was a year long secret, so I've been dying to share our news with you. Onto other news, this Scandinavian look is just so hot right now and the white washed look works on everything wood. Well hear it from me, this white oiled look is MAJOR right now. Here's how to use the product to achieve a cerused oak look.



MATERIALS



DIRECTIONS


Now, to get that Scandinavian, white-washed look, you'll want to use the white maintenance oil product from Weatherwood. 

1.] SAND
If the furniture has an existing finish, you need to remove that before trying to create this look. Sand with 60 grit sandpaper or use a chemical stripper.
 

2.] WHITEN
Apply Weatherwood's Maintenance Oil WHITE as your final step. After the maintenance oil is dry you can the the white oil. This will create the highlights to the wood grain. It's the same application process. Use a clean rag to wipe product on and immediately follow with a second clean rag to buff off any excess.

REPEAT (optl.)You can apply up to three coats of maintenance oil. Each coat will continue to lighten the finished product. Allow maintenance oil to cure 24-48 hours. 
You can use White Maintenance Oil on your furniture or any other raw wood surface. It's an absolutely beautiful finish and very commonly used on floors. It's provides about the amount of protection as furniture wax, so I recommend sealing furniture with Varnish to further protect. 

3.] PAINT
Paint the abse of the piece with a 1-step furniture paint like Pearl, color Brite.

4.] PROTECT
Make sure to seal the piece, use Pearl non-yellowing varnish to seal the whole piece.


And there they are! Like to gorgeous twins ready for their new home!





 This product will lighten any wood surface, I've shown you it on floors, cabinets (just last week) and on furniture, like below.

Piece of pie, piece of cake! Building your own pieces can be easier than you think. But if carpentry's not up your alley, you could always refurnish an old piece like the above project. 
I hope to see you tomorrow at our party!
