At Forma, we believe that every piece of wood furniture has a story to tell. From the graceful curves of a vintage chair to the sturdy elegance of a handcrafted table, wood furniture holds a timeless allure that only grows richer with age. However, like all things, wood can show signs of wear and tear over time. But fear not, revitalizing your wood furniture is easier than you might think. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the simple process of wood restoration using oil treatments, helping you preserve and enhance the beauty of your cherished pieces for generations to come.

Why Choose Oil Treatments?

Oil treatments are the perfect method for wood restoration, offering a gentle yet effective way to nourish and protect the natural beauty of wood. Unlike harsh chemicals or abrasive techniques, oil treatments penetrate deep into the wood fibers, reviving lost moisture and enhancing the wood’s color and grain. Whether you’re looking to revive an old family heirloom or breathe new life into a thrift store find, oil treatments provide a safe, eco-friendly solution that yields stunning results.


Before embarking on your wood restoration journey, it’s essential to prepare the wood surface properly. Start by cleaning the furniture with a mild wood cleaner or a mixture of warm water and gentle soap. Use a soft cloth or sponge to remove any dirt, dust, or grime, paying special attention to crevices and corners. Once the surface is clean, allow it to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.


Pour a small amount of oil onto a clean, lint-free cloth. Begin applying the oil to the wood surface with smooth, even strokes, working with the grain of the wood.

Allow the Oil to Penetrate:

Once applied, allow the oil to penetrate the wood for a couple of minutes, allowing it to soak into the fibers and nourish the wood from within.


Once you’ve completed the oil treatment process, proper maintenance is key to preserving the beauty and integrity of your wood furniture. We recommend repeating this process at least 10 times a year, depending on the humidity and sunlight exposure your furniture receives.


With the right tools and techniques, wood restoration can continue to add luxury to your home. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can breathe new life into your wood furniture, preserving its beauty and character for years to come.
