I have an old Mahogany (I think) blanket chest. Looks like it was hand carved. Really nice piece of furniture. It has a little wear and tear, and thats where I need your help. There are a few large scratches I would like to clean up / fix. Is there an easy way to fix this, to get the color close to matching? What kind of general advice do you have for cleaning up a nice old piece such as this?
I will be buying new hinges for it too. The hardware on it is goldish – what i mean is its gold with a rose colored tint. anyone know where I can find hardware like this?
