There is realiy no excuse for having' the I bad-looking woodwork in any part ot the house, nor furniture that is out or repair, because no matter how hopeless It may appear at first sight, much may . bo done with a little time, perseverance and a few inexpensive aids at hand. To begin with; says the Christian ! Herald, get the wood ready for some! kind of finish. If it is badly battered j up and the color of the stain is faded i or spotted, get sandpaper and cut it J into two wide squares. With this rub i off the paint or varnish. Begin with j coarse paper, but finish scraping with i a fine-grade paper and rub the wood J smooth. This work iH tedious, so do it i only for a short time at a stretch. I After all the old paint or varnish is removed and the wood dusted, wipe it i with an oily cloth. Then make little! pads of cotton and dip them in paraf-j fin flil and then in shellac, and then ' pat the surface of they wood with them. I Pat the wood until rl had absorbed all ' the finish it will take. The finish will ' be attractive and durable if it is care fully put on. Dorothy Dexter.
