DIY Videos to Help You Get Started

January 13, 2017

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; Wood Touch Up & Repair, Leather Touch & Repair, and Miscellaneous Surfaces.  

Wood Touch Up & Repair

Ultra Mark Wood Touch Up Marker

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.
