I was a bit skeptical about these sort of products but thought I would give this one a try. Well that was a GREAT decision!. It really works very well. It requires a bit a patience but when you get the hang of it you end up with a surprisingly good result. I used it on the dashboard of a 45 year old car to fill in some little splits. Then I used the fabric supplied to repair larger cracks in the dash. In the end it worked out really well. I ended up repairing and touching up all sorts of areas that weren't really part of the original plan and its made a fantastic difference! Really happy with the end result. Mine was just black so I haven't had to play with colour matching. The supplied black was perfect for me. Would definitely recommend this to others.
This is the only furniture repair kit I have found with the wide variety of colors and a color mixing chart to enable me to make small surface and cosmetic repairs on a number of furniture items. I was able to repair a gouge in a piece of furniture made of high density MDF, and its nearly impossible to tell there was ever any damage. I was able to fill the gouge with the wood putty that came in the kit, and then mix a color to cover the repair so that it matches perfectly. Without the color mixing chart that came in the kit, this would have been nearly impossible.
The product is magical even for a mostly-not DIY-er like me. Emailed questions are answered quickly. Can't recommend highly enough.
So I liked for å long time which kit to use. I have an old cabinet in the bathroom not made of wood but more that ikea material. It had a lot of scratches and dents.
I started with the mahogany base layer in the colours and then used other colours to bend on top of it. Worked pretty well. Colours were a good match. Nothing is ever perfect but I was happy with the result. The wood putty does really fast and does not stick so well to that type of material but I made it work. Wood putty is grey in colour and I needed to sand it before painting it, which is not in the box.
In happy with the colours and the result. The paint brush inside is cheap and nasty but you can always use another. Would be nice with a pointed brush and better quality.
From far away you can't notice anything and made a real difference. I would use the product again. I have not tried other products but when I read the reviews this one seemed best. Glad I went with it even though the price higher. Paints are easy to mix and stay wet for some time. You can clean your hands with soap and water afterwards.
I did use the repair kit and it did a pretty good job overall. I would give it 4 stars. Below is a summary of good points and suggestions for improvement.
