Why We Love Touch Up (And You Should, Too!)

August 16, 2016

The title says it all.  There are numerous reasons why we absolutely LOVE touching up wood furniture.  This post intends to take you through 4 reasons why touch up is the next thing you should fall in love with (behind coffee, if you haven't done that already).  


Reason #1: You can add color to worn pieces of furniture in literally seconds. 

How often has the picture below been an issue in your home?  You just re-painted or re-stained your cabinets, and before you know it, the edges are a different color from the rest.  Before you become demoralized; there's a simple fix!  Snag a Pro-Mark II or Ultra-Mark Touch Up Marker and revive the color of your cabinets in seconds!

Reason #2: You can turn something normal and boring into something artsy and unique!

Hop in your automobile and head down to your local Hobby Lobby or Pat-Catan's and stroll over to the wood section.  Becoming inspired can be as simple as checking out a Pinterest board or even rifling through the clearance wood section! Turn ordinary pieces of wood into coasters (find how to here), or display your last name (see our Facebook Live Video here), or any other craft you may see on a Pinterest board.  Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body made awesome coasters with our Pro-Mark II!

Reason #3: There are products for (almost) any type of repair

Whether you want to replace color to a worn edge on a table or fill a dent in your vintage dresser, there are solutions for all of your needs. Missing a corner from a table?  Try epoxy putty.  Do you have a hole in your flooring that you can't stop complaining about?  Melt some hard fill in it and forget about it.   Whether it is Epoxy Putty (top photo) or permanent repairs, Fil-Stik (bottom right) for nicks and dents, or Ultra Mark (bottom left) for replacing color, we have you covered from start to finish!  Not to mention, you can always ask us questions. :)

Reason #4: It's easy!

Alright, this one may be a tad opinionated since we are a touch up company.  However, we absolutely LOVE touch up and DIY, and we want to make the experience as fun and painless as possible!  Reach out to our Facebook or Twitter with any questions or concerns, no matter how intense or simple they may seem! We promise we won't bite!
