Welcome to our community Jgrass09!


The first thing you will want to do is sand the surface with 120- 180 grit sandpaper. Sometimes sanding will smooth out some of the dints and dings, but only if they are shallow. For area with heavy scratching, you will want to use a paintable wood filler, then sand it smooth after it dries. 


Once the surface is smooth apply a fresh coat of paint. Typically people like to paint furniture in either a satin or a semi-gloss finish.


If you have any more questions, please let us know!
