Since the dining table is a piece of furniture that is frequently used for family meals and homework assignments, it should come as no surprise that over time it will begin to exhibit symptoms of wear and tear.
We have some simple DIY ideas and tactics to keep your hardwood table looking brand new because sometimes these are unavoidable.
Here are some quick tips for repairing minor dings or damage to your dining table:
By softly sanding the area with a sanding block or sponge, the majority of minor or superficial scratches can be eliminated. Sanding should always be done with the grain. This is due to the fact that sandpaper leaves scratches on your dining table; hence, the rougher the paper and the deeper the scratches, the lower the grit (80, 120).
By following the wood’s natural grain, the scratches can be concealed by the grain. The scratches will stand out if you go against the grain since they won’t disappear.
When removing light scratches, start with fine sandpaper (180 grit) and then use something lighter (240 grit) to blend in and lessen the scratches that the 180 grit generated. Prior to this procedure, you might want to think about using medium sandpaper (120 grit) if the scratches are deeper.
Finish sanding the region in the direction of the grain using 240 grit sandpaper to erase the scratches left by the lower grit paper and blend the area in. You will be able to see the scratch marks from the coarse paper if you go from coarse sandpaper (120 grit) to fine sandpaper (240).
Before utilizing oiling or waxing to restore the dining table’s finish after removing the scratch or damage, make sure to thoroughly clean the surface.
When removing really small scratches, sandpaper isn’t always necessary; you can use several common household products instead.
