Linnéa: Got a job from our family and very good friends: four dining chairs from the 80's that were quite ugly with a thick layer of paint, topcoat brown.
They wanted to get rid of all paint and bring out the real wood. I had never had this kind of work before and really wanted to try to do it.
Luckily I am a very stubborn person but I must say that sometimes a was ready to throw in the towel and some days I wanted to throw them all away.......but I kept going and it paid off. Thank God for the Swedish Mora knife, it saved me a lot of hours! After getting rid of all the paint and lacquer and sandpapering them, I finished them with two layers of cold pressed linen oil and beeswax. The transformation was wonderful! And such a joy to see the result!
