Rehab Diaries: When You Just Need to Fix: Part II

Sometimes you just need to rehab something, but time (or energy) may not permit you to do all that you’d like.

Doing even a little something creative is better than nothing. Remember when I talked about shortcuts in Part One of Rehab Diaries?

Shortcuts generally don’t work out, but a quick fix isn’t exactly a shortcut, right?

My favorite way to get a quick fix?

A stain pen. It is total instant gratification. It’s cheap, too, ringing in at about ten bucks.

I used this pen in ebony to go over some chips in my faux bamboo chair and freshen up the contrasting bindings.

I like the pens by Minwax. Simple, easy, and a great way to get a quick fix.

Be sure to be safe and use them in a well ventilated area. They are stain, after all!
