Hardwood repair - Help Needed, problem encountered?
Had my floors done prior to moving into my house. First piece of furniture delivered resulted in a scratch down to the wood. I tried to fix myself but so far I don't like the results. See photo, I painted Poly on the scratch but the scratch took on a darker hue so it is still viable. I am hoping it is just still "wet" but I am concerned that is not the case. Floor is natural (aka unstained) and we originally used gloss poly. I used Minwax Clear Gloss Poly, sanded lightly prior to application, and applied using a brush and went with the grain. Did I do something wrong? Photo was taken about 10 hours after application at a height of about 12-18 off the floor.
Thanks for the response.... If we lived closer they would have come out and fixed it (we ordered a discontinued piece from a far away store), so instead they gave us a $100 check to find someone in our area to fix.
My thinking was this seemed easy to do and odds are I will end up with another scratch in the next 30-50 years, so I might as well learn to fix now.
So I could pay someone to fix for $0 out of pocket but I would just prefer to learn and DIY.
