Hubby put four good sized dents in the front of the vanity while moving it to the 2nd floor bathroom. It is a dark wood finish. Can it be repaired? Thanks

They sell wood filler that you can use to fill in the dings, sand it smooth, and then stain over it and apply a coat of polyurethane in a finish that matches the rest of the vanity (matte vs shiny, etc). The trick will be finding a stain that matches the color of the rest of the vanity so that the patches won't be noticeable.

It depends on the wood. If it was real hardwood, perhaps a dampening then using a warm iron might bring the surface dent back up. If it is a vanier over particleboard - good luck - filling as already suggented and refinishing might be te best plan.

It is solid wood although I don't know what kind. I don't want to go the wood filler route, that could end up looking worse.

Thanks for the input!
