Life is rough on furniture, there's no doubt about it! And if you have kids and buy a new piece of wood furniture, you can expect it to look fairly scratched and dinged up within a few years.  I found that out the hard way.

But there is hope for that worn-looking wood furniture, a way to help diminish the wear and tear that takes place a little too often for my taste. Thanks to DIY on Facebook, here's a recipe that's easy and you probably already have the ingredients.  All you need to repair wood is Canola oil and vinegar.  Measure out 3/4 cup of canola oil, add in 1/4 cup of either white vinegar or apple cider vinegar (doesn't matter) and mix it in a container that you'll be able to dip a clean rag into.  The just rub some of the mixture into the wood you want to repair and watch what happens.  If you don't use too much, you won’t need to wipe it off since the wood will probably soak it up.

I'm going to try this! Has anyone else used this method? Did it work?
