27. Hide Scratches on a Wood Dining Table

If eating, studying, mail sorting, and even light DIY projects take place on the table where you gather, the surface likely has more than a few nicks. For scratches that penetrate beyond the finish, rub a shelled walnut gently across the marks, then polish with a soft cloth. According to antiques restorer Christophe Pourny, the nut's oils naturally conceal the blemishes. To blend the fix in with a high-gloss finish, follow up with a fine paste wax for wood, and buff to a sheen.
