TIPS FOR MAKING RUSTIC FURNITURE WITH WOOD
In addition to the proposed ideas, we also have to list a series of tips that will help you when making your rustic furniture with wood.
The rustic furniture that we can make in wood is not always going to be painted, but if it is, we always have to ensure that it is of good quality . This is essential to obtain the best visual result. We recommend using acrylic or latex paint as it will give you the best results on wood, even if they are old wood sheets.ADVERTISEMENT
For a better finish, it is important first of all to sand the wooden furniture. This will make them look much newer. Choose medium grit sandpaper, this will remove old paint and dangerous wood chips that we have decided to reuse or actually use, to build our DIY furniture.

Before going to make the furniture, it is important that we have the wood that we are going to use well prepared, since it will surely be wood from old furniture or that we are going to convert into others. To do this, we have to clean the wood well with a cloth and try to hide any damage, covering and filling any hole with, for example, putty or wax.
ADDITION OF SEALANT
Before making the furniture it is also very important to treat the wood that we are going to use with a sealant , which is a viscous material that prevents the furniture from deteriorating. In addition, in the event that you decide to paint the furniture that you have built with wood, it will be the final finish of this precious restoration or manufacturing work, to create the rustic furniture that we want.
