Topic tags/keywords: pine kitchen cabinet refurbish rejuvenate

am a homeowner in Kansas, and need to “fix” some dog/kid scratches in my lacquered-pine kitchen cabinets, about 10 yrs old. in researching my options, i have been told to brush on a deft lacquer that will have the effect of “melting” the previous lacquer layer in the scratches.

I am thinking of using the Deft “Clear Wood Finish Brushing Lacquer” and hoping the scratches are greatly diminished

Thanks for any advice !

The first pic is what the the upper cabinets look like-the lower ones with drawers are the same
the second and third pic show some of the “damage” that i am trying to “hide” !

The easy way is to just wax it. It will change the color of the scratch. It looks like water damage on the quad, that looks like a strip and re-polish.

I would suggest an amber wax as well. Or you can dip a cloth in some light maple stain and try rubbing that on. Quarter round or cove always takes a beating from mops/vacuums/feet. It’s what happens in life.

Butcher’s comes in an amber. But if you have some lacquer around why not give that a shot? Problem is I’m sure that pine has darkened a bit over the past decade, that’s why I suggested the stain or wax.

Have your say...
