We understand that DIY projects, although they mean
'Do-It-Yourself', may make you feel under-qualified to complete the
given task. Whether it is a broken chair leg, scratch marks
on your kitchen table, or making sure your cabinets are protected
and looking healthy, the projects range in difficulty from easy to
impossible, and we would like to help.
We have broken up this blog article into the following sections;

Worn edges and areas of wooden furniture that has faded color
can be a small, yet annoying eye sore on your favorite piece of
furniture. The Ultra Mark wood marker uses dye pigments to
stain the worn areas corresponding to the surrounding areas. Before
the marker is used on a surface, it should be tested on a spot that
is not easily visible to ensure the right color has been chosen.
We made a guide to help find the best color here. If you are curious as to how easy this
remarkable tool can help you, click the photo to see Tasha from
Designer Trapped In A Lawyer's Body walk you through it.
The Pro Mark offers a capillary tip that dispenses ink evenly
and can be used for one inch or 20 feet without stopping! The Pro
Mark contains dye colors instead of stain colors like that of the
Ultra Mark. An example of how the Pro Mark can be used is

Mohawk. Not only does the Mohawk Leather System clean and
protect, but it also helps you remove stains like marks from pens,
lipstick, grass stain, and much more! See how quickly Tasha
removes pen from leather in the video below.
