I went and visited family on Sunday and had a little get-together in honor of my sister-in-law's birthday. While preparing food, we realized our bag of walnuts was rancid. We were about to throw out the bag when my sister-in-law mentioned we could use the nuts to "erase" scuff marks from furniture. She gave a little demonstration and it worked beautifully. Here's how it looks on my parent's cabinets. I suppose one could use Old English just as well (which is probably less messy) but I thought this was really neat!
I'm a 24 year old entrepreneur with a bachelor's degree in fine arts. I love interior design, re-purposing thrift store finds and tackling projects both big and small.
"Hirondelle Rustique" is the french translation for barn swallow. These birds often nested under the eaves of my grandfather's workshop and in the barns of the farmhouse where I grew up. They remind me of where I came from and because of that, I'll always have a special place in my heart, just for them.
