Bring life back to a banged up beauty.  We talked about using coffee grounds to cover scratches in wood.  Did you also know that the humble walnut can be a great help in masking scratches in light wood furniture?  Simply rub raw walnut meat over the scratch several times.  Rub the surface with your finger to help the wood absorb the nut’s oil.  You can also use a pecan if that’s what you have on hand.
