From the moment I heard about these wax brushes, I wanted one. Some girls like shoes or purses or jewelry. Just give me a cool DIY tool…even better, a brush. I now have a few of these brushes and I use them all the time for waxing furniture. They have all served me very well.
It’s a compact, stiff brush with a wide, flat surface that’s perfect for covering large areas like table tops, but also getting into the nooks and crannies of carved details and turned legs.
I’ve used it in many different waxes from Fiddes & Sons to Annie Sloan’s Soft Wax, Briwax, Johnson’s, Minwax and Mylands. It’s worked well with all of the different textures.
Have you wanted to try one? Or two? (Now there’s a 1.5″ brush for smaller projects and finer details.) Well, Karla from Lady Butterbug is giving away SIX pairs of brushes. That’s right. Six winner will be chosen at random to win one large and one small wax brush each.
Here are some more details about the brushes…
“These brushes are professionally manufactured right here in the good old USA. These are premium quality and we truly believe you will love them for applying wax to furniture pieces. They are made using the finest quality white boar bristles available. The wooden handles are double set in epoxy into a nickel plated ferrule. The brushes are available in the standard 2” round and we have added a 1.5” round as well. The 1.5” brush has really been a hit for smaller jobs and applying a dark wax in smaller amounts.”
