HOW TO USE HEMP SEED OIL AS A FURNITURE FINISH | BURL WOOD VINTAGE CABINET REFRESH
If you’re looking for an EASY WIPE ON durable-streak-free finish for your wood OR painted furniture, I’ve got you covered! Here’s how I flipped this dried-out Salvaged Vintage Cabinet into a gorgeous rich Burl Wood beauty using 100% All-Natural Hemp Oil!
I had every intention of painting this old cabinet when I saw the listing on FBMP. But once I saw it in person, I changed my mind. The seller’s pics didn’t do it justice. Sure, the Burl Wood Veneer had dried out from age and looked dull from years of use, but it was in almost perfect condition.
After applying just ONE coat of furniture Hemp Oil, this cabinet is looking wood-licious on the inside and out!
What do you think? So much better, right?!

HOW TO USE HEMP OIL
From old age and normal wear and tear, this vintage burl wood veneer was very dry.
To nourish the wood and bring back the luster, I used this DB Hemp Oil.
Hemp Oil is 100% All-Natural, environmentally friendly, food-safe, and VERY easy to use.
It’s a streak-free sealer for wood OR over a freshly painted piece of furniture. It can be applied with a sponge, brush, shop towel, or any lint-free cloth… or just pour it on and rub it in with your hand! Below I’m applying it with a shop towel.
Here are the steps I took…
HEMP OIL FURNITURE SEALER
- Clean your piece – I used this cleaner here.
- Rub in some Hemp Oil – I used these shop towels.
- Wait 12 hours and wipe off any excess.
- Repeat if needed.
Check out the HUGE difference it makes!
In the pic below, the left side has one coat of Hemp Oil rubbed on and the right side is the original wood. The Hemp Oil takes around 12 hours to dry and dries to a matte finish. If you see any “pooling” or “splotches” of oil after 12 hours, it means the wood or your painted finish has absorbed as much as it can. Wipe back and you’re done.
