The dresser top has seen better days. It probably needs refinished, but that's something I'm more likely to look at a little later, when Tiger Lily isn't three.
In any case, I had recently seen a recipe for wood polish on Pinterest (promising miracles, of course). I gave it a try, since it was relatively cheap and I had the ingredients on hand. It worked! I can't believe how much better that poor dresser looks now. Bonus: no toxic fumes!
Thrifty wood polish
1/4 cup oil (canola, vegetable, olive, whatever you've got)
3/4 cup vinegar
Mix oil and vinegar together in a bowl. Dust your wood and/or clean it. Apply polish with a soft cloth (note that the oil will float on top, so dip your rag far enough into the mixture to get some vinegar on it, too). Polish with a dry cloth.
