Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this project, I used:

Step 2: Apply Scratch Cover

All I do is apply Old English Brand scratch cover all over the peice of furniture using a Kleenex hand towel. The scratch cover comes in two different colors, one for dark wood and one for light wood. I always make sure to have both on hand and test the colors out on an inconspicous part of the furniture first to see which color works best.

Step 3: Finished!

And that’s all it takes! This could be useful to improve the value of an item before you sell it or to extend the life of an item in your home. If you enjoyed this tutorial, please consider following me on Instructables and subscribing to my Youtube channel to see more content like this.
