Feed-N-Wax Giveaway!

So, I thought I'd share the amazing bounty of Howard products that my new friend (COO of Howard Products) Eric Howard sent to me this week.  Behold the awesome generosity of this man!
Let's break this down so you can really see all the stuff.  The right side contains a few different shades of Restor-A-Finish and tons of baby Feed-N-Wax bottles!
The other side is a bunch of different products by Howard, paste wax, granite cleaner, orange oil, upholstery cleaner, 'Sunwax' for outdoor furniture, butcher block conditioner and oil, and what I will probably be using right away - the brass and silver polish! 
Realizing that there is no way I could ever use all the 4.7oz Feed-N-Wax bottles, I am going to do a little giveaway.  Everyone who comments on this post will get a chance to win two mini bottles of Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner.  I would also love it if you would tell me what you plan to use it for!  I will be choosing THREE winners, so comment away and be sure to include an email if not available on your blog. 

Giveaway closes Wednesday night, I will announce the winners Thursday and try to get them in the mail Friday!  Read all about the wonderful products made by Howard here, and check out my experience with Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax here

ps - Mr. Howard didn't send these items to me with the intention of getting free advertising, nor for me to do a giveaway.  He was simply sharing his products with me because he knew I would appreciate them and use them.  I'm sharing the Feed-N-Wax with my readers (and paying for the shipping) because I know you will love it!

I ADORE Feed & Wax! I use it on every piece of wood furniture I have. I love, love, love it. In fact, I just ran out when I was doing our farm table.

LOVE IT! Lucky girl you are. You are going to have so much fun with all those products!

lil Me said...

Hooray! I have a great set of 60's living room furniture I am eager to re-finish!

I'd love to try this product on a huge antique tiger oak cabinet that my mother-in-law gave us for our dining room. Your cabinet turned out so incredible. I wonder how long it lasts? Will you have to do it again after a while or is it one time application?

I would love to win some Feed-N-Wax. I inherited my Grandmother's bedroom furniture and would love to use some on it. Thanks for doing this!

This is a great giveaway! I have a dresser and a coffee table that I would love to use this on, especially seeing how wonderful your piece turned out!

KTryon said...

I've been out searching for some Restore-a-finish since you posted that walnut dresser! I have a similar piece in the same condition and I hope the get the same results you did!

The Brick Cottage said...

Hmmm, what won't I use it on?! I have some chairs, one dresser and one chest of drawers that could all use a little conditioning.

Kerry said...

WHOOOA He really hooked you up! That is awesome!

I don't know exactly what I would use it on... but I am sure one of the MANY pieces of furniture I have waiting around in our garage for me to refinish would be perfect! :)

Stacy said...

I would love to try it on my grandma's buffet. Maybe it will be done just in time for Thanksgiving???

Sharon@Sharon at Home said...

Great give away ... my furniture is gasping for polish/conditioner!

lauren @ gathering moss said...

i want to try it! i have a little chest that my dad refinished back in the day that could use form sprucing.

Amy and Greg said...

Hi Sara! Your post came at just the right time! We have a water mark on our "new to us" Craigslist dining table and when I read your post on Restor-A-Finish I knew I had to try it. I'd love some Feed-N-Wax to finish it off.

Thanks for posting the give away!

Sara said...

Thanks for the awesome giveaway. My dining room table, which has seen much better days, is rocking a very weird whitish stain on it that virtually appeared out of nowhere. The next day I read about you using this. I am hopeful this could be the solution to my woes.

Breanne said...

I would really love to try this stuff on our new 'sideboard'. It's actually a dresser that I found at the thrift store for 60 bucks. I love it, and it's a nice rich medium tone, but it's covered in little scratches and marks. It definitely was well loved in the past! It would ad some nice shine to our dining room if I was able to polish it up a bit.

Kate R said...

I would love to try this on my mahogany bedroom set. It was my parents first big furniture purchase after they were married, in 1941! It needs some major TLC! justmeande at yahoo dot com

I have a bunch of items that need to be refinished. I've got my first grandbaby on the way and I have gone, well, a little nuts.

Michelle said...

I would love to try this on so many things in my house (I have a thrifting addiction)...

meryl rose said...

Wow! That is so amazingly nice of HIM and YOU! I would LOVE to use the walnut stain on a pass through we plan to (finally) install in the area between the kitchen and TV room. It's only been sitting empty as the top of 2 sheets of drywall and a 2x4 for 18 months now...

Rosa said...

I have two night stand dressers that I plan to refinish. This would help me do it without sanding and keeping the finish. Once I read your post, I decided this is the way to go. Thanks for the giveaway. Fun!

E @ Oh! Apostrophe said...

Oooh you know I'd love this! I'd probably put it to work on our living room coffee table which is in very sad shape.

Cindy @The Flipping Couple said...

Wow, that's awesome!! If I'm a lucky winner I'll be using it on our inherited dining room table. Someday we need to refinish it, but it could use some love in the mean time!

Vonda said...

Awesome! I hope I'm one of the lucky winners. I plan to use it on my Dining Room table and china cabinet which was given to me by my mom and has definitely seen better days.

ninniemuggins said...

I would use this on our maple kitchen cabinets - they need some love!

Wow! This stuff does work magic. My grandparents have been giving me some of their old antiques. I bet this stuff would make then look bright and brand new. I just love hand-me-downs!

jojotalb said...

I'd use it to spruce up the hand me down furniture that is currently filling my apartment!

Sarah said...

There's an antique shop close to my house that has cans of the Restor-a-Finish for sale and have been tempted many times by the promises on the label. Now that I know it lives up to the label, I'll have to pick up a can for the million furniture projects I have waiting in the wings.

Cindy said...

I would love to win..I will use it on a 30 yr. old dining table.

Anonymous said...

Sweet! some of my 75 year old window casings have gone funky in the finish. I wonder if this stuff will work on that?

I'd be slathering my grandmother's china hutch and the 1940's dressers I scored for free.

Pigeon said...

I'd be using it on my mission chair...since I've painted just about every other piece of furniture in the house.

marie.buttles(at)gmail(dot)com said...

I'd use it on my kitchen cabinets...they're needing some major love!

Ashley said...

My kitchen cabinets are in definite need as well!

kristen said...

dear sara,
i was once a lonely coffee table living in an old ladies basement. she then swindled her son into putting me on craigslist, where i met my new bff kristen. she has big plans to sand me, stain my top a sassy new shade of walnut, and then get me drunk on some 'feed and wax'. please help me in my quest to be fed and waxed.
love always,
kristens new craigslist coffee table

kristen said...

ps - kristens email is wellskri@gmail.com.
she was so excited that she completely forgot.

Erin K. said...

My husband and I are currently in the process of filling our house with "grown-up" furniture and getting rid of all our college crap. We love purchasing stuff off craigslist, etc. and refinishing them. These Howard Products would be so useful! Love reading the blog! crewqueen422@hotmail.com

kayduh said...

I would love to win this! I would use it on a vintage card catalog I bought recently.

Elisa @ What the Vita said...

Great giveaway! I have a vintage dresser from CL that is screaming for this type of treatment!

Amanda said...

Well isn't that nice of you! And holy craploadofstuff! I would love this stuff, because like a dummy I didn't poly my newly refinished outdoor table and it's already looking too weathered. One day I'll learn!

Marie said...

I have an old dresser and a lane chest that would really benefit from this, how nice!

Oonafey said...

Wow, what a generous man! I'd love to try it out on the dresser I refinished for the Misters bedside table. It just needs a little "oomph"!

Deb said...

Since I am DYING to try that stuff, I am frantically searching Craigs List for something worthwhile on which to use it. So, I can't tell you what I'll use it on because, well, I haven't found anything yet. But I'm still looking!!! :)

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Barbara - I'm sure the finish will wear out after awhile. I plan to reapply the feed n wax when the shine is gone. Also - I will need your email if you win the contest!

Rebecca said...

I was pretty impressed with the way your buffet turned out. pretty impressive product!

Hailey said...

I love the restor-a-finish! I have used it on lots of furniture (old hand me downs that now look FABULOUS) and even my hard wood floors after a had a few moving scratches (suggested by Home Depot employee)! My house is chaulk full of un-painted wood, so I have many many areas to use this on to keep everything looking beautiful. I would love to see how their other products work too...

Yeah, this is so exciting :)

Erin B ela1235@gmail.com said...

I think I found a credenza on craigslist so I really need to try this! And the brass polish. I have an old frame with brass accents I'm trying to save.

thepurplepeach said...

I'm a furniture scavenger at our local thrift stores so I have PLENTY of furniture that would benefit from a good wax!

Love the blog!

Lynett said...

Ohhhh I need this! I want this!!! I have a piece waiting to be nurtured and this will come in handy!

Vmomma said...

Wow that is a awesome box to get in the mail! I so need to win this. My great grandmothers china cabinet is waiting for me to pick up. I've been delaying because it needs some TLC due to water marks and I knew I wasn't up for a stain job and it is too important to slap a coat of paint on it.

carrie @ brick city love said...

I've got an old dresser and console that need some TLC. Yes PLEASE!!!

Jeri said...

I've been interested in trying out Mr. Howard products on my old, thirsty dining table.

I like ther waxes they work really great on furniture. i would like to try the silver polish

I bought a beatiful mid-century table two years ago. It was in perfect condition. Now? Not so much. I think this stuff will help fix it though!

Please enter me in your drawing. I'm looking to refinish an old dress for use as a baby changing station and this stuff would really help me out.

Love your blog.

What a great guy (and a great blogger)! I would love to try this stuff out on two things: Coffee table and an old wooden dresser with mirror on top- it needs some TLC!

Holyoke Home said...

Hi Sara! That was so nice of him to send you all that gorgeous product! I have three teak mid-century modern pieces that REALLY need a nice coat of clear wax to protect them from the inevitable dings and scratches I make on furniture. Can't. Help. It.

Kate@TwentySixToLife said...

Whoa! What great stuff! I would love something like that! I don't know that I have something to use them on right now, but I promise if I win I'll go find something new to work on just for the free stuff!

the cape on the corner said...

wow, that's a lot of stuff! i am thinking of two potentials for this product, both involving ages of grime and general nastiness, and possibly laminate. i think i need all the help i can get!

Anonymous said...

Your amazing results motivate me to try it on the windowsills of our 85 yr old house. I refinished the windows 20 yrs ago but the sills have weathered and it would be a pain to strip them all over again.

Jamie Lee said...

That's amazing! What a generous guy! I would love to win one of those Feed-N-Wax bottles. I've never used the product before! If I won, I'd use on our new (very old) dining room table. Thanks for being so generous and giving us some of your new stuff!

Alexson said...

How nice of him!

I'd love some for a dark wood console that has seen better days. It's front and center in our living room and currently looks just a smidge pathetic. :)

Jenny @ Anything Pretty said...

Wow how fun is all that stuff? I would use it on tons of wooden furniture at the house....the coffee table, the office desk, the dining room table etc...

Danielle M. said...

I've never used this line of products, but I have my Grandfather's antique church pew in my garage that needs a good polishing-I'm def. going to go and buy some of this if I don't win it! I love what you are doing with your house!

Sarah said...

We have a 1920's Lane Cedar chest that I scored for $80 at an estate auction that is DYING for some love. Also, hell, our entire house is dying for some love so I'm sure we can find something to use it on around here.

threeacres said...

Awesome!

I'd use it on the old dresser we inherated from my grandma in-law. We hope to someday use it in our future children's room.

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

This is so cool. Whether I win or not, I gotta try some of this stuff. I really want to try the RestorAFinish on a really cool vintage sewing cabinet I got on Craigslist. I know it's gonna be lovely, but it's just rough right now.

Anonymous said...

Coolio..I'm hoping to refinish a dry sink from Black dark stain to more oak/light walnut...This would come in handy :)

heather said...

I was SO hoping to be comment #69, but that's neither here nor there.

As for the products - tonight, yes TONIGHT, I am planning to finish sanding my dining room table and hopefully staining it a lovely dark walnut. And I have a night stand and a dresser to sand and stain/paint as well. So....basically I need this. :)

oooh.... me me me! {see me jumping up and down waving my arms!]

glenna said...

I am in possession of a family heirloom--an early 1920's Shaker style Huntboard that was always used in the large kitchen in a house we have in the country. I loved it so much that I brought it home so I could enjoy it on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the wood is very dry and almost ashy looking. Do you think these products could encourage the life back into it? I would very much like to be the one you choose, to try.
