In these cases, where a little stress has been placed on an area, wood fill is your furniture's best furniture. It can work little miracles as with this amazing dresser that I have not yet finished refinishing. But to start with, I needed to help it heal from a nasty little scrape.
P.s. If you are interested in this raving beauty, please email me with your request for color and I can custom finish it for you. Otherwise, stay alert for its future reveal in my choice of design.
