Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
For this project, I used:
- Furniture Markers https://amzn.to/2I63SNG
- Kleenex Hand Towels https://amzn.to/2UpwQ1n (these are more durable than paper towels and do not leave behind residue on the furniture)
- Old English Scratch Cover For Dark Woods https://amzn.to/2I781Rm
- Old English Scratch Cover For Light Woods https://amzn.to/2VcbS3j
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.
