Before, during and after restoration

Photos showing before during and after shots of a pair of Antique late Victorian mahogany balloon back dining chairs.The original surface finish has been cleaned with a mixture of Methylated spirits,Pure Turpentine,Acetic acid,Brasso, Washing up liquid, and Ammonia.Given a good shake this emulsion of ingredients is very effective at removing the build up of dirt and grime,water marks,paint(from when people have redecorated a room and not protected the furniture)very rare to come across old furniture that doesn’t have paint spots on it 🙂 All the stuff that obliterates and hides the natural beauty of wood and isn’t desirable as patina.
