Hi there, Try using Mayonnaise and a soft cloth. Rub in and leave then buff up.
Thanks for answering... What do I buff with? Beginner here😁
Clean it well and then try a rejuvenating oil like hemp oil or teak oil. I also like Howard feed and wax, bit it works great after the oil to add protection.
Check our Treasures by the sea on facebook. Jess Sea has paint ,stain that doesnt need the piece sanded. Awesome paint.. Seaspell Seapaint!
Use Old English scratch cover for light wood. Great item. Use it generously on the entire surface for starters. Wear rubber gloves and buff with a piece of flannel rag.
There is a product out there for wood floors named Rejuvenate. It is sold at the home stores.
I would recommend a product called “Retor-A-Finish” in a compatible color. I have used with great results.
I have used Old English Scatch Cover for years. I would start with the medium and if that doesn't match the top to its base go to the dark. Use rubber gloves. Apply all over top, let sit for a bit then buff well with soft cloth.
Howard's Feed and Wax is the best!
Restor-A-Finish would probably work well for this piece. They have it at Home Depot with different shades to match the color of the wood
Dry Ice or soda blasting, maybe walnut shells, no sand!, I would think you will still need a light sanding with whatever you do, but it would get the nooks and cranies with out sanding.
I swear by Howard’s restor-a-finish and fine steel wool. I put on gloves, pour the liquid in an old tuna can. Wipe on piece , with grain, with steel wool, wipe off with a paper towel. Best stuff ever! Comes to match in shades for several different finishes.
I really like Old English, as Bunny and Mar recommend. It does wonders, without having to refinish the piece.
Another idea is to use a furniture marker. They come in a package with several color options: maple, oak, cherry, walnut, mahogany, and black. Made by a company called RamPro. I have used this product and was very happy with results.
