Welcome to another great episode of DIY with MRL. The show notes below will help you quickly find the items and projects mentioned in episode #13 How to Deal With Mildew on Furniture.
Yes, whether your furniture project has mildew, mold or just plain old musty drawers, today’s show will address tips for dealing with it.
This conversation starts with a question from Barbara who found an antique chair on the side of the road.
The first project discussed were the blue gray bookshelves that I got from a neighbor that had a lot of mildew on them from being stored in a dark, damp storage area.

Do you have musty drawers, is the next project I discuss. A project was made from a desk that had been stored in the basement, causing the drawers to become very musty. I tried many, many items but I mentioned that Odo Ban was the product that works the best. I still continue to use this product all around the home.
Also in this week’s show were comments from friends who had great advice about how they tackle their own musty smelling furniture.
There was a product I mentioned that I thought Laura might have been talking about, but the name was escaping me while I was recording the podcast. I’ve used Damp Rid for absorbing moisture in the damp basement.
Tru has a great idea for suitcases! Click play below to hear all about it.
For the project coffee station repurposed buffet, I actually used Clorox Disinfecting Bleach Foamer for the Bathroom to deal with mildew. For more details click over to the blog post or click play below.
I share briefly how I paint 99% of my projects using my diy chalky paint primer using plaster of paris and Behr paint. I either use my Homeright Finish Max or a cheap chip brush. I explain why I prefer the chip brush over a nice Purdy paint brush, and how I do several light coats for the perfect paint finish. Click play below.
