How can I fix a faux leather/vinyl coffee table top that has marks from wear (coffee cups) etc. I still like the table and am redoing the room.

    I would paint them. I’ve seen others do this with chalk paint. I think it would look stunning to do them in a metallic gold or silver depending on your decor but might be trickier and more expensive than chalk paint. Once done, consider getting a glass top to protect it.

    I'm such a fan of covering surfaces with fabric or paper (old book pages, torn brown paper bags, etc.) Then seal with clear finish.

    I have beautiful old dresser that I found but it had huge rings all over the pop from cups sitting on it! I tried a few different things and nothing seemed to be working so one day as I was just about to give up, I don't know what gave me the idea but I thought hmmmm.... Tanning oil... So I sprayed it on the top and went about my day. That evening to my complete surprise it was beautiful. You couldn't even tell it was damaged in the first place! I was so excited! So now every few months I'll polish it with my Hawaiian tropic dark tanning oil and it's now a focal point in my bathroom! 😍
