How do I take care of my painted furniture? Here are some tips for the care of your one of a kind painted and waxed furniture.
Your furniture has been sealed with wax or a water-based poly. These are water resistant finishes, not waterproof. Any spills should be cleaned up immediately with a clean cloth or paper towel.
To clean your piece, first remove dust with a soft clean cloth or duster, use a damp cloth to gently wipe it down. If needed a mild soap is okay. Avoid all cleaning products that contain alcohol, this will dissolve the wax finish.
Never use furniture polishes that contain dimethicone, a silicone that may cause cracks to appear in the paint.
Use coasters, trivets, placemats or other buffers when placing food or drinks on your furniture.
Place or pick up items rather than drag or pull items across the surface to avoid scratches or blemishes in the finish.
Never place furniture in direct sun or near a heat source. This may cause the paint to fade or crack.
Do you take custom requests? Yes, when my schedule allows I take on custom orders. I can source the perfect piece or if you are local I can arrange pick up or take delivery of your furniture.
What type of paint do you use? I use high quality Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and waxes.
Do you accept returns? At this time I do not accept returns. I do my very best to describe the condition of the furniture and the finish applied. These are vintage pieces of furniture with character, and blemishes from a life well lived. They are repaired and refinished to function properly. If damage is done during shipping it must go through the shipping company.
Do you have a showroom? I am currently selling online only. If you are local to the CT area, I am happy to make an appointment for you to view furniture or artwork in person.
