Care for your PIY

  • Protect the surface of unpainted furniture from the collision with flint and knife cutting to prevent damage. 
  • Don't place wet or hot objects on your wooden furniture. Place trivets and coasters in between.
  • Use a dry, soft cotton cloth wipe up fluid spills immediately to prevent water stains.
  • Excessive or prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade the color of your furniture and dry the wood. Use window coverings or tablecloths to avoid daily direct exposure of your furniture to the sun.
  • Frequently dusting of your furniture will help maintain finishes. Use a dry, soft cotton cloth to wipe in the same direction as wood patterns. Don't use a wet wipe to avoid dirt extension.
  • Prevent unpainted wooden part from soaking. Wipe dry promptly. Keep your unpainted furniture away from a wet environment such as bathrooms. If you do so, apply dehumidification and make sure the room airy. 
  • As part of natural aging, your wood furniture will typically develop a beautiful patina and undergo color changes, depending on the wood. Cherry usually darkens while walnut tends to lighten with time. Pine, alder and red oak tend to turn a golden color as they age.
  • For unexpected scratches, use 600 grits sandpaper to polish.
