Renovating a space? Looking for a way to spruce up old wood? Say hello to Rubio Monocoat. Here at SCF Hardware, Rubio Monocoat has rapidly become our go-to brand for achieving a premium finish for wooden surfaces. In fact, we love their products so much that we thought we’d share our top five creative projects to demonstrate what the range has to offer!

1. Revitalise Old Furniture

Most of us have at least one piece of wooden furniture at home that’s become worn out over time. With a fresh application of Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, it’s a simple process to breathe new life into them. The oil penetrates the wood fibres, providing a protective layer while highlighting the grain. For added drama, we’ve found that adding a layer of Rubio Monocoat Precolor first will really ensure the final hue pops with vibrancy.

2. Create A Vintage Wooden Shelf

For those who love the old-world charm of vintage furniture, using Rubio Monocoat Pre-Aging is a great way to impart an aged look to new wooden surfaces. Once you’ve achieved the desired antiquated feel, apply a coat of oil to ensure longevity and protection.

3. Wooden Floor Makeover

It’s no secret that wooden floors tend to undergo a great deal of wear and tear. With a simple application of Rubio Monocoat Oil, however, those floorboards can be renewed with a glossy, even finish. Before diving in, prepare the surface with Rubio Monocoat Cleaner. This will ensure a high-quality finish by allowing the oil to bind to the wood correctly. You can also pair this with an accelerator to significantly reduce the drying time.

4. Craft A Wooden Sign

A personalised wooden sign can be a warm addition to your home or a perfect gift. Sketch out your design and choose your favourite hue from the range of Rubio Monocoat Wood Creams. Once applied, seal your artwork with a Hybrid Wood Protector for a long-lasting external finish.

5. Maintenance And Care

It’s natural for wooden finishes to become faded over time, but there are solutions available. Rubio Monocoat Soap is excellent for regular cleaning, ensuring your wood remains in pristine condition. For any deep stains, give the stain remover set a go. This kit can remove grease, limespot, tannin, and dirty marks from oiled interior wood without causing any damage to the wood’s protection or colour.
