DIY: fix scratches in wood furniture


DIY: fix wood scratches

A few weeks ago I read this post at Lily & Thistle about a DIY for fixing scratched furniture. It seemed too good to be true! She claimed that she used a mixture of 1/4 cup vinegar and 3/4 cup olive oil and magically got rid of the scratches in a piece of thrift store furniture.

I knew I was going to try it, though! See, I have this table:

my preciousssss...

My husband hates it, but I just adore it! I have a small large obsession for vintage modern furniture, and this is one of my favorite pieces I've collected (He calls them my "ugly grandpa furniture." What does he know about style? Bah!). But in this case, he's kind of right. As much as I love it, it's in really bad shape on the top. Check it out:

DIY fix scratches in wood furniture

I've tried furniture polish and orange oil, and nothing really makes it look much better. It was sitting forlornly in our garage waiting for me to decide if it was worth keeping, so I figured I'd give this magical trick a try as a last ditch effort.

I mixed about 1/2 cup vinegar with 1/2 cup of olive oil, because I didn't have enough Olive Oil and it still worked! Check it out:

I took a kitchen rag and just dipped it in and rubbed it on. I kept going until I had gone over the whole table and used almost all of the mixture. I was shocked! It really worked! The scratches were fixed! My "grandpa table" now looks like this:

Let's just do a little side by side comparison, shall we? I think this deserves it's own montage. Try and imagine Rocky music in your head for me as we watch the transformation:

Yikes! That is a crazy difference! Not only does it look better but my table is now silky smooth and clean. Um, yeah, I'd say it worked! The best part (unless you're my husband) is that now my precious table is a totally usable piece of furniture again, and has been restored to it's rightful place in our entry way hall:


I forsee this table and I having a long and happy life together now, sorry Honey!

I think I can pretty obviously say that I recommend it as a successful scratch fix. Let me know how this works for you! If you're looking for more of our home projects, you can find there on our For the Home page here.

    2. I'm very excited to try this out! I was wondering what type of vinegar you used?

      Delete
    3. The picture looks as if white vinegar was used.

    4. How long does it last, though? Does anyone know. I tried something before, not this recipe, and it took care of the problems and looked absolutely beautiful. But, after a month or so, it was back to all the scratchy looking surface that it was prior. I would have to keep reapplying. Is this a permanent fix or would reapplication need to be done? Anyone know?

    5. At the top it says 1/4 cup and 3/4 cup and down the page it says 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup....do you know which one it should be? Thanks

      Delete
    6. she clearly states that she only used 1/2 and 1/2 because she didnt have enough olive oil on hand but it still worked. The recipe calls for 1/4 v to 3/4 oil

    7. I tried this on some worn hardwood floors and they look like I waxed them. I have tried other products and gotten results that didn't last more than 24 hours. If this doesn't last I will do it again. I am amazed. Thanks, Judy Carlson 4-45, 2014

    8. I was wondering how this worked/held up on floors...my biggest concern would be the oil being tracked elsewhere creating stains and attracting dirt....??

  9. Oh my goodness! This is amazing. :)

    We have a square hand-me-down coffee table that looks just about the same way your hall table looked, so I'm definitely giving this a try! Any idea how/why this method works? Oh, and about how long did you spend rubbing in the oil/vinegar mixture?

    Thanks! ~Lisa @ HappyinDoleValley :)

    1. Hi Lisa! We were just discussing this the other day. We theorized about why this works and after looking it up we found this: The vinegar is just acidic enough to cut through all of the built up oils/artificial cleaners/dirt that is clogging up the scratches and scuffs. Once the vinegar strips the old dirt and oils, the olive oil is able to seep into the scratches and give the wood more color and the moisture that it needs. I don't know how well this would work with a very dark finish, I have only tried it on lighter finishes, but hopefully it will work for you!

  11. How does this work, do you know? I don't want to put anything on some of my wood furniture(but some scuffs and scratches) unless I know it won't hurt the finish! BTW, your before/after really shows the remarkable change this magic potion wrought on your vintage table. And, for what it's worth, I agree with you. I think your vintage table is quite stylish and fits the space perfectly. What is one man's "grandpa table" could be worth a small fortune 50 years from now...

    1. Hi! Hilary and I were just talking about this! Both vinegar and olive oil are completely natural materials, so I don't believe they will hurt the finish at all. We were theorizing about why this works and after looking it up we found this: The vinegar is just acidic enough to cut through all of the built up oils/artificial cleaners/dirt that is clogging up the scratches and scuffs. Once the vinegar strips the old dirt and oils, the olive oil is able to seep into the scratches and give the wood more color and moisture.

  48. what ratio is actually being used? Original says 1/4c vinegar to 3/4c olive oil. Second ratio says 1/2c to 1/2c (equal parts) and the picture, at least to me looks like it is 3/4c vinegar and 1/4c olive oil. I really want to try it but dont want it to be an epic fail.

    1. I used 1/2 and 1/2 because that's what I had on hand. I think as long as you're mixing the two ingredients it wouldn't be an epic fail.

  56. Oh, I used 1:1 ratio of olive oil and white destilled vinegar. and gave it a little whisk to comine :)

  57. I had tried this before on our wooden floors with the original ration of 3/4c olive oil to 1/4c vinegar and it looked horrible, tried it again just now with 1/4c canola oil and 1/4c vinegar and it still is awful. It just makes the floor really slippery and oily and makes the scratches look MUCH WORSE and they maintain a "wet" look, so the floor stays light coloured and the scratches turn a much darker colour and stand out like a sore thumb. I did then try it on our dining room table and coffee table as they had really dulled over the years and it worked very nicely on them. Just not for floors I guess.

  58. I used this on my dark wood hope chest and nothing:(

    Replies
    1. For darker finishes, swap out the white vinegar for AC vinegar. It contains natural tannins that should help. But it's a little more acidic than regular white vinegar, so I wouldn't do 50/50. You can also replace the olive oil with walnut oil.

      Delete
  59. I bought two ladderback chairs for grandgirls' first apartment. The wood is not real bad, but I knew it could use something to cover scratches, etc. I have applied the mixture to the chairs, but it appears I will need to wipe them down. I am leaving them overnight and, then, wiping. I will post, again, when that is down. Right now, they look great, but they are, still, "wet."

  60. OOps....couldn't wait until morning. I got an old hand towel and wiped....they are beautiful! I am so excited. It works! Thanks!

  61. I tried this on my kitchen table. Someone scratched the number 1 on the top. This procedure filled in the color on most of it after about 20 minutes of rubbing the vinegar & oil in. It is a very deep scratch. I may try it one more time. It does give the table a very nice sheen.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Our dogs have drooled on and scratched two window sills when they hear "Daddy" drive in. I just used this mixture, and the wood looks so much better! I only wiped on them for a short time (maybe 15 seconds), and the areas discolored from the drool are no longer discolored. Someone mentioned working on a deep scratch for about 20 minutes, so I'll heed that advice and work on the scratches for a longer time. Overall, though, wow, those sills look SO much better!

  63. I tried this today on an old Ethan Allen coffee table. It really improved the look of the wood and didn't stay greasy after a wipe-down with a cloth rag. Also worked on mahogany amd teak furniture in my house. Thanks!

    1. I tried this on two tables...one dark and one light. The dark table, this did not work... I ended up with a shiny table with scratches. The lighter table it worked on some of the scratches... but not the deeper scratches. I used 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup oil.

      I would recommend this approach to lighter woods with moderate scratches. Anything dark...or deep scratches will not get the same results as what is posted in the pictures.

    2. Correction.... I used 3/4 oil and 1/4 white vinegar.

  80. I own a green cleaning company and I use a similar mixture about every other month on unsealed wood surfaces. I no longer use olive oil though, I use grapeseed oil, pine oil, and a little orange oil with lemon juice and white vinegar. the mixture of oils works well on different types of wood, it seems to last longer than just the olive oil and the orange and lemon and pine mask the vinegar smell. It also doesn't smell like Italian dressing which some people found disconcerting. For very dark wood you can also add some instant coffee to darken the oils. If you have deep scratches in walnut or pecan colored woods, rub the actual nuts into the scratches before rubbing the oils into it. This doesn't last forever, but neither does dusting, you need to do the maintenance regularly. One word of CAUTION...do NOT use too much, and give the oil time to soak in. I DON'T recommend using it on a floor as it can be slippery.

  81. Scratches on a wooden furniture is one of the major factor why I don't love having a wooden furniture. It is hard to maintain its nice quality but you have shared us a good way to have it nice and can help us maintain its nice appearance. Nice one!

  84. This did not work on my dark finish dining table. I think it works when the scratch or wear goes ALL THE WAY THROUGH the finish. My table has superficial scratches only- they still look awful- but the mixture couldn't penetrate deeply enough to cover them. Also, as others have noted, you will need to keep applying this. It is not permanent. And I would use mineral oil instead because over time, and with ewxposure to heat, the olive oil could go rancid and make your wood stink. Ask me how I know....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks Breadwithhoney, this is exactly what I was wondering. Someone on HGTV had said something similar about conditioning butcher block counter tops. They strongly warned that olive oil could ruin the counter top as the oil could co rancid and instead told the viewers to use mineral oil. After reading this post and so many happy comments, I am curious if anyone has had this issue, or has it all been peachy keen? I'm hesitant to try the olive oil, but we already own it. If no one has had this issue I'd be willing to give it a try...

  86. That is really a great thing. I would like to suggest that instead of repairing the old furniture you can also purchase new modern furniture as I too have recently purchased to decorate our home from Animadomus which was a great experience with them.

  93. We have a huge, wonderful cabinet that was in my aunt's house for 20+ years before living untouched in my parents' basement for another 5. We finally found a use for it, but it wasn't quite going to cut it being scratched, worn, and just plain sad looking. I just used this mixture on in, and all I can say is WOW! This worked wonders. Almost all of the scratches are either gone or seriously improved, and the finish is revitalized. Plus, it couldn't have been easier to apply (a great bonus for such a monstrous piece of furniture). Thank you so much for sharing this tip!!

  106. I love the style of the table, can't imagine why your husband doesn't like it. But I hate the cheap-looking plastic basket with it. Please swap it or a pretty naturally woven one!

  107. Hello!
    I just tested this. How long should it dry, and if it does not dry, I wipe off the remainder with a washcloth or dry kitchen towel?
    I have already begun to see a difference after half an hour. :)

  108. I have used this and it works great. I have a water mark that didnt go away but all the scratches mars and wear marks are gone. I keep a jar of it mixed up and use it like a polish. So to answer the question how long does it last, I havent had to do it again and its been months but if I want a high gloss shine I just pour a little on and polish it up. I have even started using it on my cupboards.

  112. Didn't work at all. I have a dresser the same exact color as your table. All I did was waste my olive oil and leave my dresser super oily as heck.

  113. tried this and it didn't work that well... I'm assuming there needs to be a specific kind of olive oil and/or vinegar to use. It also only works on light scratces. View my results: http://mynicheiswhat.blogspot.com/

  133. I just used this recipe on my secretary desk. It was covered in scratches and water marks. I just used equal parts of olive and white vinegar. The results were amazing. I am so happy that I don't have to refinish it yet. I think I will try this on my oak window sills to see if it will bring back the luster in the wood. It sorta faded.

  135. Would this have a detrimental effect on a table that has been stained a dark colour ? I have fine scratches on a mango wood coffee table that was stained a very dark brown by the makers. It won't strip the stain will it, or make it patchy ?

  144. There is a less untidy, economical option: Buffing hardwood floors is one part of the revamping methodology. buffing is really a relative new system Hardwood floor repair utilized as a part of resurfacing that attempts to restore the looks of old hardwood floors. In the event that you do it appropriately, you can make certain that your old floor will look gleaming and shiny new at the end of the day.

  145. I can fully relate to this. I have got to be very corporation with myself or i'm going to come home with a ton of "just in case" items. My rule is that if I haven't any instantaneous need for it (until it can be fairly super) it does not come residence with me. Outside of shopping, I have the occasional tough time throwing matters away - "gosh, that is a relatively high-quality box, I will have to put it aside for...." *eyeroll* On a common be aware, i have never seem them all but your site really stands out for the usefulness and fine of your DIY projects!
