As many of you know, I live in a place that has provided me with my every want and need over the past 6 months. They have also provided me with this, a lovely dresser, with a not so lovely image. It holds my clothes, yes. What it doesn't do is look nice. I've been trying to cover the top of this dresser with anything and everything I can find to hide those scratches!
I was reading about how to fix scratches in wood and I came across a simple and seemingly outrageous idea.. walnuts. What do I mean by walnuts? Let me tell you step by step.
1) Buy walnuts from the grocery store (the bigger the chunks the better.. like halves are great).
2) Rab walnut directly onto scratched surface in a small circular motion.
3) Be amazed.
Don't believe me? Check out these before and after pictures.
(Note: The oil from the walnuts does not heal or fill in the scratch.. it simply darkens it so that it is closer to the original color of the wood. It works ike a wood marker/crayon but the natural way!)
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
