In this instructable, I will be showing you how to hide scratches in wood furniture. Watch the 1 minute video above to see how I do this or keep reading below.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this project, I used:

Step 2: Use Furniture Markers

I start by using furniture markers to fill in any scratches, making sure to wipe over the spots with a Kleenex hand towel immediately after I marker them. These markers come in a variety of colors and I always test out the markers on an inconspicous spot first to see which color matches best.

Step 3: Use Scratch Cover

For larger areas of damage or fading, I apply Old English brand scratch cover to a Kleenex hand towel and wipe it on the entire area. The scratch cover comes in two different colors, one for light wood and one for dark wood. I like to have both on hand and test them out on an inconspicuous spot to see which works best.

Step 4: Finished!

And that’s all it takes! This is a great way to restore old furniture or even cover scratches on wood floors. If you enjoyed this tutorial, please consider following me on Instructables and subscribing to my Youtube channel to see more content like this.
