Fixing scratches in Bellawood prefinished floors
 
I installed Bellawood prefinished Brazilian walnut throughout our house – beautiful stuff! But I have already caused some significant scratches due to a chair legs having exposed metal (UGGH). Any ideas on easy ways to fix the scratches - other than rugs.

I stain marker will help darken the wood, so the scratch matches the rest of the floor.

A cheap way that I have used....depending on the color of wood, is to take a brown magic marker and color the scratch in.

I don't think you can completely remove the scratch without having to sand.

I would suggest buying some felt covers that can be placed on the legs of furniture. The really work quite nicely.
