Refinishing a dresser. Guest put something on the dresser overnight and it took the finish right off. Have to go sand and poly before tonight. I may have to move another dresser in the room if someone wants the room tonight.

  No matter how many coasters, doilies or scarves I used, guests still managed to mark up the furniture. Over the years I have covered almost all of the horizontal surfaces in the guest rooms with glass.  Now, I just wipe the glass and I'm done!   And, I can still put doilies under the glass if I want to fru-fru it up a bit.

Sorry you are having to deal with that today.  People have no idea what all we do day in and day out. 

Interestingly, this last weekend 2 of the three couples staying with us spoke with us about all we must do around here, doing everything ourselves etc.  When cleaning the rooms the room that left the tip - you guessed it, the 3rd couple and a nice crisp 20 at that!

All fixed up. Dry and looks a heckuva lot better than it did. It still needs a serious redo when I have more time.

Walk-ins. No credit card on file. And it's not something I would charge for anyway. Cost of doing business. Broken and unusable? Then I would charge. Needs a little TLC? I just handle it.

Can't you just put a doily over it? Eye-wink

I would have done but it was too close to the edge of the dresser top. I'm just hoping it dries in this rainy weather.

That is why I use the old-fashioned dresser scarves. They are long enough to hang over the sides.
