Read on a for a few sneaky tricks for improving your home.
Never underestimate the power of a Sharpie ~ Yes, it’s a little known fact and a homeowners dream ~ it can easily be used to cover up the scratches in wood furniture or floors. Just match the color as best you can and start small!
Fix up those really bad floors ~ Several companies make fix-it kits for badly scratched or gouged floors (check the carpet cleaning aisle at the supermarket), but you can save yourself some money with a pack of Crayolas. The wax helps fill in the gaps, and by alternating with a brown pen or two, you can greatly improve the look of your floors. Will they pass for brand new? Probably not, but they are better than nothing while you’re saving to have them refinished.
