COLOURED OIL FINISHES: See Why This Under-Rated Approach is Great

Coloured wood finishing oils are beautiful and repairable, and that’s why they work exceptionally well on surfaces that get regular wear. When the surface is looking a little tired, just clean it well and apply more oil. This is much better than a urethane finish on high-wear surfaces like stairs, table tops and any place where a finish wears out or gets scratched.
