After using Restor-a Finish, the cabinets looked practically brand new!! A few things to note, though:
#1 - The grain in the wood becomes more pronounced and more defined. Imagine oak cabinets with the grain depth of hickory.
#2 - the final finish is quite dull. In our situation, a klitchen with dark red walls and stainless/black appliances, the dull satin finish worked really well. In the bathrooms, we ended up using a bees wax product to give them some luster.
#3 - While the product is easy to use, it is still labor intensive. We used the steel wool method of applying, after wiping the cabinets down witha high quality acidic wood wash that we got though our local woodshop. That cut through all of the grease and gunk. Then we went back with the Restor-a-Finish with o grade steel wool and applied with the gran of the wood. I did this twice. Each time the finish improved, but each time thw wood got a little darker. Since our wood was of a medium grain medium stain, a little darker was OK.
My suggestion to ANYBODY thinking about redoing a kitchen: buy this and try it on the insides of some cabinet doors first. You may find the facelift is more than enough to hold off on new cabinets for a while.

Restoration is not the same as refinishing. On some types of wood furnishings and finishes, it will improve the appearance dramatically, remove blemishes and clean the wood.
It works best on:
-Furniture that is scratched with a dull stained finish
-Fine furniture with a shiny lacquer finish
It will improve the appearance of badly scratched furniture with the above types of finishes.
It does not work well on sealed finishes (polyurethane).
I have used this product in all of the above situations. Following are some of the results achieved.
First, a small pine table with a dull finish appeared shabby and needed improvement. The surface was severely scratched, with mostly surface level damage. After a five minute simple wipe-on application of the product using a rag, the results were dramatic. If I wanted to fuss over this piece, I would reapply using fine steel wool and touch up some of the gouges with a stain pen. Six months later, the table looks almost as it did prior to using the product, and it needs to be reapplied.
Howard's Restor-A-Finish proved it's worth during my second project, the restoration of a high quality solid wood table top with a glossy, lacquered
The table had white heat marks the size of a salad plate that would not disappear with any previous methods attempted.
Prior to using this product, I attempted to remove the white marks by researching solutions in Google. "Removing white heat marks from wood" yielded several cautious attempts from "applying steam again" to using toothpaste, mayonnaise and other so-called "remedies".Read more ›
A couple of other thoughts:
-This will obviously not fill in dents, holes, etc. but will solve scratching etc. well (Even made a spot my dog had gnawed disappear into the rest of the wood).
-For scratched up wood I used 0000 steel wool to apply following the grain of the wood and followed with a rag to wipe.
-I did use the Howard's wax and feed product after the Restor-a-Finish dried. Not sure if that's necessary but it seemed to leave a nice smooth finish
-This product smells like stain so you will probably want to open a window or make sure the area you are working is ventilated.
-Don't spill this stuff! I have been lucky so far but I shudder to think of what would happen if this spilled on the carpet / wood floors.
Bottom line is that this was pretty much the best $10 I ever spent. I believe this added tremendous value as we try and sell our house.

This may work fine on real antique finish, in fact I think I did use it successfully on an old dinning room set years ago. On modern finishes, you may need to strip and refinish. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Anna M. Leuenberger
