Hemp Oil Finish

Vintage washboard and Hemp Oil

After - evening under the porch light. 

Unusual to find an old and well used washboard as well as a vintage wire soap holder in the same week at different thrift sales. The apron is from my collection, bib style with poppies.

I like to add protection to old wood and Hemp Oil is my choice. It does change the tone of the wood and as it dries in it adds a good finish.

Before and After wiping with Hemp Oil

I buy my hemp oil from retailers for Miss Mustard Seed Paint and from Fusion Paint. I am guessing that ASCP retailers would sell it too. 

Another evening view with the porch light turned off.

I do use Hemp Oil to protect leather as well as wood and metal surfaces as well as chalk-type painted surfaces.

Here I used hemp oil on a leather purse

Here is a post on using hemp oil on metal.

September Roses

The fires and hurricanes are foremost in our minds.
Here is a brief respite - a late summer rose. 

Thanks for visiting.

  2. Old things are so lovely. My mother had one of those wash boards.

  3. I have an old rub board and rake like this. However, it is in the original state.

  4. Hello, the old washboard is cool and the hemp oil made the wood lovely. Your rose is gorgeous, I love the color. Happy weekend to you!
