I didn’t go to enough yard sales last year — New Year’s Resolution to go to more this spring and summer! I find the best things when I go yard saling, like this mid-century modern cabinet I scored a few years back for $10.
It’s sat untouched in our family room for years until I got around to sprucing it up.
While it’s a little hard to tell in the first photo, the piece was all scratched up.
Scratches on the top:

And scratches on the door:
I cleaned up the piece with soap and water before using my trusty Restor-A-Finish to touch up the scratches.
To us the product, I simply put it on a paper towel and rub it into the cracks and all over the cabinet. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, then wipe the whole piece down. To finish, wax the piece using the same technique.
It goes from looking like this ^^ to this:
The scratches are still in the top, but are far less noticeable.
It really cleans the whole thing up!
Now the piece looks great in our house. I still can’t believe I score it for only $10. What a deal.
