"Busy Bee" Plaque
All Sticks furniture is multi-coated with low VOC water based polyurethane to provide a durable finish that can withstand everyday usage for a long time to come!
To care for your piece we recommend:
- Use soap and water to clean your piece.
- Non-abrasive household cleaning products can also be used; however, avoid letting cleaning solutions and/or moisture sit on your piece for extended periods of time.
- Avoid direct contact with extreme heat and use hot pads for warm and hot plates.
- We also recommend against high amounts of sun to prevent fading as the polyurethane finish in not UV protectant.

Frequently asked questions regarding Sticks and our art –
A. No, please just display them as art! Our partner Studio Vertu does make trivets using our artwork though, you can shop for them here.
A. No, we kindly request you not place glass on top of our products - it can ruin the artwork! Any damage resulting from using glass is your responsibility.
A. All Sticks furniture is multi-coated with low VOC water based polyurethane to provide a durable finish that can withstand everyday usage for a long time to come. We recommend using mild soap and water with a soft non abrasive rag to clean your piece. Non-abrasive household cleaning products can also be used; however, avoid letting cleaning solutions and/or moisture sit on your piece for extended periods of time. Avoid direct contact with extreme heat and use hot pads for warm and hot plates. We also recommend against high amounts of sun to prevent fading as the polyurethane finish does not have UV protective qualities.
Q. How do I care for my Sticks Leather pieces?
A. All Sticks leather products are treated with an industrial top coat that seals and protects our stitched and painted artwork. To clean any of our leather products, simply use a lightly water dampened soft cloth. For difficult to remove stains, try a warm water on a dampened cloth. Sticks doesn't recommend use of leather conditioner or any type of soap or cleaning product. With years of regular use, the top coat can eventually ware off. Sticks, or a qualified furniture repair specialist can respray a fresh top coat on to add life to your Sticks leather product. If you have any questions or concerns about leather care or leather restoration services, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Do Sticks products require periodic refinishing?
A. All wooden furniture that has any type of protective top-coat will require refinishing periodically depending on ware. The top-coat we use is water based polyurethane satin which is sprayed on using a professional air assist spray gun system in a commercial spray booth. Any professional furniture re-finisher could lightly sand down your Sticks piece and multi-coat spray on fresh coats of finish. If you decide to have your furniture refinished by a professional, please have them contact us directly for guidance. Sticks can also provide furniture refinishing services which are quoted on a per instance basis. If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com and if applicable, include photos of your piece, and the 5 digit alphanumeric job order number on the back or underside of your Sticks product.
