Allison sent us a good question: My boyfriend and I recently bought a great 1950's dresser in pretty good condition except for one small detail: there is a chip in the veneer on the lower left hand drawer. It's only about an inch square chip and not very noticeable, but I was wondering if anyone our there in apartmenttherapyland knew how to repair veneer besides the cheap and obvious wood stain pen? ...
