Are You Going Nuts Repairing Scratches on Furniture? Prepare to be Amazed!

23 January 2017

The before shot shows some deep scratch damage to a table, caused by a sweet but rambunctious kitty.

A simple shelled walnut (or pecan) can help repair shallow scratches on most woods; it's a staging trick I've used around the house and have suggested many times.

The scratches were rubbed with the edible part of a shelled walnut, then buffed with a a thumb; the warmth created by buffing the scratch with your thumb warms the walnut oil, helping it absorb into the wood. Repeat until a desirable improvement is achieved, then step back and be amazed!

This won't repair the etched in claw marks but will help to minimize most small shallow marks to the point of being unnoticeable rather than unsightly. Works on most colours of natural wood or real wood veneers.

Ultimately, the table needs refinishing. For now, far less noticeable and hopefully that scratch won't drive you nuts!
