Scratched Bed Footboard
This started out as a repair job for some damage caused by a local cleaning service. There were a number of scratches and scuffs caused by a poorly managed vacuum cleaner hose, but the owner wanted the whole piece resurfaced, so be it.
The pieces on either side illustrate the type of damage I had to work with. Differences in tone have to do with lighting. The coloring was consistent. I was able to use a light pecan stain to repair the scratches that actually exposed the wood below the finish. The rest I filled with several coats of varnish and then sanded them flat and buffed them to smooth the surface.
The end results turned out pretty well, I thought
