hollymathisinteriors Those of you with butcher block counters, any experience with this oil and or Waterlox. I am curious about the Waterlox drying and cute time required #mathisnewoldhouse #waterlox #williamsburgbutcherblockco 15h
  •   vanessakleypas On our first house 9 years ago we used tung oil. Reoiled every couple of months. It held up pretty good for 3 years but I have been so much happier with Waterlox. 5 years ago we put in bb at our new house and used waterox. The counters still look great. Google "Kleypas countertop" and it will pull up my blog post about the counters and how we installed and sealed them. 11h
  •   sandahlyn @laurentuggle I saw this convo and thought of you 11h
  •   laurentuggle @sandahlyn thanks!! We used Waterlox too. 11h
  •   laureneharding We stained and then waterloxed. Absolutely love the way they turned out but seemed to take forever. We were living in our house so did one counter at a time - big mistake. All turned out a little different! 7h
  •   atimetokeep We have has Waterlox on our butcher block for 6 years. It has held up well except for the place where I left a bottle of dish detergent flipped over to get it all to the top of the bottle...it leaked out and bleached a circle on the countertops (near the back fortunately!). I put my paper towel ring on that spot and it doesn't bother me much. But I really wish I had known better!! So don't let dishwasher detergent sit on them and you'll be fine with Waterlox. 6h
  •   atimetokeep @kmgoodallva thought you might be interested in this thread 6h
  •   hollymathisinteriors Helps a lot @Aligillespie Thank u!!!! 6h
  •   eaststreetdesign We use Waterlox on our IKEA butcher block and do 4 coats. We wait 24 hrs between coats and use them the next day after last coat. Have done it a few times in the 5 1/2 years we have had them. 5h

hollymathisinteriors I wish I had splurged and gotten this top down feature in more places. It's perfect here outside our master bath @selectblinds #mathisnewoldhouse 18h
  •   kimberlyjanel So lovely!! Is this Edgewood grey too? 16h
  •   hollymathisinteriors This wall color is BM revere pewter @Kimberlyjanel 15h
  •   jj_bonds Everything is looking fantastic! More, more! 11h
  •   baylorpayne I just installed 30 of these and they are very sturdy and easy to install once you do a couple. The privacy liner gives plenty of privacy and it was dramatic how much the house cooled down once I installed all of them, even the ones in the sunroom. 11h
  •   hollymathisinteriors Thanks @baylorpayne your wife is one lucky lady; 6h
  •   aafricks I have a question. Was any of your previous paint on the trim oil based? If so what did you use when you repainted? Did you have to sand it? Wondering what to do about my own oil based trim that is in desperate need of painting. @hollymathisinteriors 5h
  •   hollymathisinteriors @aafricks go back with oil on trim for sure 4h
  •   beau_fam I have a trim question too! My new (to me) house has cream trim and doors (and not a light cream!). I am struggling with decorating. I'm do used up bright white trim and I'm now having to rethink everything! Is your trim cream or white? Any tips to picking colors that look good with cream? I'm feeling overwhelmed by cream trim/tan walls! 2h

hollymathisinteriors Polishing old wood floors tonight...aching already. What are you fave tips for breathing life into old floors #Murphysoil #orangeglo? #mathisnewoldhouse 5d
  •   desireecarroll Vinegar and water with a little lemon essential oil 5d
  •   raleighmom Bona! They have a rejuv product and then use their mop and cleaner as needed. Costco has the clesner in a big jug. My kids fight over who gets to use the bona spray mop! #cheaplabor 5d
  •   lisa_schrim On 7/23 Pioneer Woman did a post on her Home and Garden Blog about a product they used on the old floors in the historic building remodel- it was Bona Naturale. 5d
  •   whitefishdreamin @cls531 the filmy buildup on @hollymathisinteriors wood floors is probably filled wax. My housekeepers mopped mine with Murphy's once before I could stop them and mine dulled instantly. Therefore they needed to be buffed and or waxed again. I could have killed them. They misunderstood their orders to dust mop. Not wet mop. . Waxed floors are coming back in style. Prob with so many people spending so much to refinish a scratched dull poly floor and the headache of moving out to have it done. We use paste wax. We bought a gallon in 2007 directly from a hard wood floor place. We probably haven't used a 1/5 of it. I apply with my hand usually or cheese cloth. I can usually apply better with my bare hand then my husband Buffs. It's usually a good several hours of work vacuuming and that's the only time I light mop with water and vinegar. Then moving furniture etc. Putting it all back. 4d
  •   whitefishdreamin Dulled not filled 4d
  •   cls531 @whitefishdreamin Thank you so much for all the information! 4d
  •   whitefishdreamin @cls531 you're most welcome. Hope it was helpful. 3d
  •   certagreen If your just looking to temporarily spruce them up to hold you from a screen and re-coat or Refinishing service. Head out to your local Depot or Lowes pick up Bona wood floor refresher/polish(1qt covers up to 500sqft), Bona wood floor cleaner and a micro-fiber applicator. Remove all or larger pieces of furniture on areas you'll be working on. 1st Vacuum, 2nd Clean(using Bona wood floor cleaner) 3rd apply Bona polish with the grain not against as you make your way out each area. You may apply a second coat after 2hr dry time. This is what is referred to as a clean & polish process. Best part is you can use it on aluminum oxide or on site finish flooring :) @hollymathisinteriors 3d
