A marker for all wood tones
From hiding a nick in my heel to discreetly covering up a scratch on my coffee table or a friend's leather sofa, a quick colouring job makes everything almost as good as new.
Now, Sharpie has stepped up its game with wood tone series. The Sharpie Touch-Up Permanent Marker has been advertised to "Touch up furniture, flooring, doors, cabinetry, wood trim and picture frames with a few quick strokes."
Available in light wood, medium wood and dark wood hues, you're likely to find a decent, if not perfect, match for your banged up armoire or table.
The company recommends starting with a lighter shade and moving to a darker one if required, and using a cloth immediately after colouring to remove extra ink, as allowing ink to sit longer before wiping will result in a darker colour — which may help with matching, or create an unsightly blight on grandma's dining table.
Sharpie says the markers are for use on pine, oak, cherry, walnut and mahogany surfaces.
I haven't tried it yet, but I will definitely pick up a pack when I see it in store. I may be moving in the not-too-distant future, and it never hurts to have a back up plan for all those scratches, dings and dents!
Do you use permanent markers for touch-ups, or other creative uses, at home?
