Reclaimed Wood Duck Book Ends
Here’s one of reasons why we offer Howard RestoraFinish and Feed N Wax in furniture refinishing kits. These two products can easily give most woods a quick pick me up without you having to completely restore them. I consider these products must haves in my small arsenal of home improvement products and here’s why.
These four wood duck book ends were found at our local Goodwill store for $1 a pair. Both sets had the same duck missing the same eye but otherwise well-loved with wear spots and scratches.
A little wood filler gave the ducks a new eye. Once dry, I painted the eye yellow, added a black center and finished with a coat of clear top nail polish.
As I was adding back an eye, I dusted the book ends before using a paper towel to cover them with Howard RestoraFinish in walnut.
I let them dry for a couple of hours while I finished another project. The wood was dehydrated so it dried quickly.
Once dry, I treated the wood with a layer of Howard Feed N Wax and allowed the pieces to sit for about half an hour.
Once buffed with an old cotton sock. the ducks were ready for a swim in my library.
Every time I use these products I am delightfully surprised at the results!
