Hack-Worthy Wooden Furniture Fix Using Just One Walnut

Finding, buying or building great designs is one thing, but maintaining them can be quite another. Chips and dings in wood furniture can be especially difficult because any single-color solution (e.g. furniture marker) may be too blunt an instrument.

With that in mind, sometimes the fix for a natural furnishing is found in nature – say, in the form of a simple cracked-open walnut (particularly for those mid-toned, mid-century walnut furniture pieces, perhaps).

The moisture and variegation of the nut helps blend with natural wood tones – no perfect match is promised, but it sure is worth a shot. Tip via ApartmentTherapy.
