Now most furniture lovers would care for their wooden furnitures obsessively. They would polish it every now and then, making sure the edges looks good and so forth. By so, it would be a gut wrenching experience if they found one of the parts chipped off or there’s a scratch on it . Don’t worry we got it covered.
Before attempting to repair any chips or scratches on the furniture piece, clean it so that it is free of dirt and grime. A solution of 1 tablespoon household detergent mixed with a pint of warm water is sufficient to clean most stains. If any oil-based stains exist, spot clean them with a small amount of mineral spirits applied to a soft cloth or cotton swab.
Pick several crayons out of a crayon box that most closely match the furniture’s finish. Rub the lightest of the selected crayons over the chip, followed by one or more darker selected crayons. Buff the area with a soft cloth to remove crayon from the surrounding area and to smooth the filled-in area so it matches the level of the undamaged finish.
For a deeper chip or gouge, sand the area with a fine, 600-grit sandpaper first to get rid of any rough edges. Then, use a wax putty stick of the same color as the original wood, and fill the gouge with wax.
4. Nail Polish
Use clear nail polish to fill in the chip, then allow it to dry. Once the liquid fills the hole, remove the brush and allow the polish to dry completely. Buff it gently with very fine sandpaper, then again with a soft cloth until it shines or matches the existing finish.
5. Touch-Up Pens
If the furniture is metal, opt for paint touch-up pens from an automotive supply store if the finish color is common on vehicles. Apply the paint with an applicator brush included in the lid, similar to applying nail polish, or by rolling the paint on as if writing with a ballpoint pen
