I have 2 toddlers and a German shepherd in my house, which has gone to a state of function disrepair. My daughter discovered the beautiful lines you can make on cherry end tables using a fork. My dog in his sweet puppiness chewed the mahogany tv stand. I’m not vain, I can live with that. I mean, the damage was significant. He took a shark bite out of the wood, with fiberous splinters in all directions. And of course, the contrast is what draws your eyes.I used the markers in layers, getting them darker but still matching the right amount of red tones. It was so much better at this point, a swell of peace washed over me. But then: the wax crayon! Huzzah! Filling in the divots and adding a spark of shine! My word! Did these items ever get damaged in the first place?! Maybe. Well, that’s an exaggeration, if you look, and the light is right, you can still tell. But it’s pretty passable.I love this product. For $15 it made my living room look presentable again. I now put it in my baby shower gift bags, and the parents laugh.
Excellent product, I like the variety of colors.
These markers work well on small scratches, did not try the wax sticks.
The choice in colors made it easy to match with the furniture. Crayon served as a great filler. This product VERY user friendly, thanks!
I used the crayons on the worn areas on the sides of my kitchen & bathroom cabinets. The crayons seemed to work better & easier than the pens. Plus, the pens were hard to match the color of my cherry cabinets.
Good thing we have a cheap dining table. I would have been really annoyed otherwise. These “furniture repair markers” are no different from any markers. It just looked like someone colored and drew all over the dining table. I tried various colors to see if maybe I could mix it and make it look more natural. I also tried filling in scratches with the wax pencil. Unfortunately nothing worked and now my table looks even worse :/
These markers look great at first but after some time they all end up looking orange and not blending in with the wood at all.
I have now had a chance to use these pens on a variety of furniture, so have a good idea what they can and cannot do. Much of this review echoes other reviews and advice. I used them on moderate to heavily dinged and scratched furniture.Note: this product is not magic and is not a substitute for refinishing furniture! It also cannot make crappy, low quality furniture look good. Works best on damaged, but solid, wood. If used correctly, it can really improve the looks of furniture. If you buy used furniture for rentals or AirBnB or have good but well used furniture, it really can do the trick! If you are looking to sell used furniture, it can make it look much better.Pros: pens can make deep scratches and divots disappear, greatly improves the look, and can cover annoying damage to your wood furniture IF used properly.Cons: wax filler is a joke. I did a lot of research on how to use these and had zero luck. Pens were not effective on wear or rub marks, such as on corners. Can look sloppy if not used with caution.Tips: First clean the surface thoroughly, then clean it again with lemon oil, wipe off excess, buff, and then dry. This will actually address a lot of damage and improve the finish. Have lemon oil and a rag ready to go to wipe off excess, if you apply over non-damaged stained areas it can absorb the dye and is hard or impossible to get off. For scratches, press the tip hard into the scratch and wipe off right away with lemon oil on a rag. Repeat until you get the desired effect. Same with divots. Large surface blemishes can take a few passes, again, apply, wipe, repeat.Bottom line: if you have reasonable expectations and take the time to use it correctly, the pens are a great product. If you have good furniture that you love, check into getting it refinished, it may be cheaper than you think, and definitely cheaper than buying new.
Worked great for covering scratches.
Like using a regular marker. Crayon is useless.
They did not work as expected. The coverage was too light. Their quality compares to children's crayons and wide common markers.
Good product. Would recommend.
Great price - great product - perfect colors!!!
Quality and great selection of colors to match any surface.
I have multiple color furniture and this brings it back to new life. All the scratches are hidden and it is so easy to use. If you can remember how to color from kindergarten you can fix those scratches.
Product arrived in great condition. Worked perfectly, covering gouged areas and scratches on 3 tables. Very easy to use and repairs are virtually undetectable.
