Traditional varnish oil is my favourite type of finish for indoor furniture pieces. My favourite brand of varnish oil is Tried and True. It’s completely non-toxic, it doesn’t smell up my house, it provides good protection and it looks beautiful.
However, some people say this is a difficult finish to apply. I don’t find using this finish difficult, I think it just takes a little know-how. This is how I do it.
