  1. If I waxed a table and would like to put hemp oil down should I sand the wax off and then put the hemp oil on? Then should I wax after the hemp oil? This is a kitchen farm table. The customer wants it natural looking but as the designer/builder I want it protected. Thank you for you advise.

  2. I have a similar question. If I white wax a table top, can I apply the poly on top to create a solid protected piece? I love the look of the white wax but I too want something that is going to durable and last. Thank you for your advice!

    1. No, I do not suggest applying the Tough Coat over the wax. If you want the look of white wax, but the Tough Coat finish, I would suggest doing a white wash with Farmhouse White or Ironstone and then applying the Tough Coat.

  3. I am having trouble getting the eulalie’s sky to mix up as dark as the sample. What am I doing wrong??

  4. I would love to know your color choices for your home. I’ve looked around on the blog but came up empty handed. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction

  5. Miss Marian,

    I have watched your u tube demonstration and it has given me the courage to attempt a home project. I had to watch your demonstration several times before catching all the details. I was able to recover 6 antique dining room chairs which were a bit more difficult than your example since they had a “form collar” glued to a burlap piece, then a muslin, plus a batting and finally the fabric. It entailed a lot of stapling!!!!

    I did purchase a compressor and then borrowed a pneumatic stapler gun. The gun was not easy to use and I was wondering if you could give me the exact name and model number of the gun you suggest. Also the brand and model number of the staples.

    How do you recommend upholstering an armchair with a double bias trim? What is the way to make the trim.

    I would so much hearing from as I feel your instructions were so valuable.
