I have a couple of pieces of furniture(childs desk,chair, dresser) that I wish to store. I don’t wish to sell or part with this stuff and as I look at it, it would go for big bucks new. My parents probably made a genuine sacrifice to buy it then and it served me well when I was first married to about 20 years until we got stuff that matched.
Going to store in an unheated DRY second story garage. Upstate NY temps and humidity ranges are horrible, 95 deg 90% humidity in August and friggin cold ( as low as -5) in January and February.
I will cover both pieces with cotton canvas for protection.
The finish is not oil but some kind of vanish or poly from the early 70’s.
QUESTION: What’s going to happen to the finish?
I’m mostly a lurker here admiring all the stuff you folks make. Soon I’ll have finished laying about 550 sf of wide pine flooring that’s about as close to woodworking as I am getting.
Thank you in advance.
