Most of the furniture in our home has either been purchased from a garage sale, been handed down to us, or has *ahem* been trash picked. Yes, we’re dumpster divers. We’ve picked up some really wonderful pieces of furniture this way, and often all that is needed is a little tender loving care and homemade furniture polish to turn someone else’s trash into our treasure.

Here’s my simple, easy-to-make recipe for homemade furniture polish. Keep in mind that this is for occasional use only, since it contains beeswax which can build up on furniture if used too often.
Homemade Furniture Polish
- 1 tablespoon grated beeswax
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
Melt the beeswax in a small glass canning jar which is sitting in a pot of water over low heat.
Once the wax melts, stir in the coconut oil and remove the jar from the warm water.
Allow to cool.
Now use a clean cloth to rub the polish onto your wood furniture. Allow this to sit for a few minutes.
Using another clean cloth, buff the furniture until all residue is removed.
The results are beautiful!
