Fix scratches with WALNUTS?

Somewhere in the interwebs I read that if you rub walnuts over scratches in wood, the scratches will disappear…How? Why? *shrugs* I don’t know, but I thought I’d give it a try. So a couple of days ago, I ordered walnuts in my salad and took a couple out to bring home and “walnut” my hardwood floor (do not chuckle at my money-saving methods of DIYing). See, in the middle of sliding my bookcases to the wall, I didn’t notice a small staple on the floor. It got trapped underneath and scratched the entire hell out of my floor. The shriek of horror that filled my condo….OMG. I shudder every time I pass by it. Ugh. So here’s the process:

The scratches BEFORE "walnutting." See 'em?

My magic walnuts....After I took all the *ahem* salad dressing off. -_-

In action! Just rubbing the walnut over the scratches.

AFTER!! So the scratches are still there (they didn't magically disappear) but they are hardly noticeable! BOOM!

Still don’t know why or how it works…but while I was rubbing the walnuts on the scratches, a combination of walnut oil and walnut meat (uhh, is that what it’s called?) sort of filled in the scratches. I’m no scientist (OBVIOUSLY), but maybe it has something to do with that. Either way it gets a BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE from me!  *fireworks*

Do y’all have any other wood scratch mending tips?

  1. Crayons. Seriously. The wax fills the scratch and you can wipe the surface after, voila.
