Rustic Natural Cedar Furniture has introduced this finish simply to provide more options to the consumer. It is a multi-step process to ensure a quality finish.
-A sealant coat is applied to the sanded surface. This is the first of two sealant coats that is applied.
-Once the first coat is dry, the product is sanded to provide a more porous surface for the second coat.
-The second coat is applied and allowed to dry.
-The piece is sanded again to prepare for the lacquer coat
-The final, lacquer, coat is applied.
Caring for Finished Furniture
Assembling our finished furniture is slightly different from assembling our unfinished products. It is important that the pieces are not hit together as it will cause a scuff on the finish. The finish can be kept in its best condition by taking care to not hit any piece with a hard object or other pieces. It can cause undesirable mark in the finish.
Unfortunately our new finish is not available for outdoor use. For those customers who desire stains or UV protection for outdoor furniture, we recommend Penofin®. We have tested this line of products extensively and have had great results. Penofin® offers a wide variety of stains and UV inhibitors for outdoor use in a variety of colors.
For those customers that are conservation minded, Penofin has just introduced the Verde finish, a sustainable vegetation-based treatment that is environmentally sound and safe for children and pets. To read more about what Rustic is doing to go green, visit Carolina Rustica
