I remember, during vacations, that home’s grandchildren (me too) would play climbing the wooden staircase up and down. Some of them used to make loud thuds, bang and climb applying much force on the steps. But now too, that staircase stands so strong with not even a single scratch.
Restoring your old furniture and other things made of quality wood would be a reasonable idea. You can restore them using either the following three methods:
Grease and dust that have accumulated your wooden material should be removed and then polished to give a new look.
The last finish given to the material or the outer layer should be stripped off and given a new finish.
Damaged parts of the structure such as a broken handle of the door or an unleveled drawer of the table or a shaky leg of the settee should be replaced with a new one without changing the other parts.
Restoration is another form of recycling that won’t make use of new materials. Also, you’re showing respect to your forefathers by giving value to those age old goods. Remember the quote, “Reduce, reuse and recycle” to save energy thereby making our mother earth green.
