Coloring on Furniture With Markers

Doesn't that sound like a lot of fun?  And so naughty?

I'd been noticing that some of our furniture is a bit dinged up from wear and tear.  We had been trying to figure out the easiest way to fix the dings, without too much work.  I found this idea on a blog (I forget which one, sorry!). 

Furniture pens!

We went to Lowe's and bought some Homax Wood Stain Marker Pens.  They were about $5 each.

Ooooh, an action shot!

Whenever i visit my mom, I don't think I've seen a day she doesn't use those things. She loves them. She's a perfectionist and wear and tear does not sit well with her.

I used one but I didn't blend it in like you did and it totally looks like I highlighted it with brown pen! Ugh, now I will sand it and try again. Thanks for posting!

CB, don't know if you'll come back to see this, but: you can mix the pen colors together to get an "in-between" color.

This is a great way to fix those annoying little furniture dings. I have a couple the movers put in my chair that I'll look for this to use.

Thanks for the great tip!

We have pens kind of like that to touch up scratches on our hardwood floors. Great idea. Thanks for joining WUW.
