|Before the touch ups...|
As you can see, the picture frame suffered from a lot of "loving", as it was pretty scratched up. But that is just a minor problem in the scheme of things. I found a brown, fine tip paint pen (or a fine tip marker would probably have worked too) and touched up the rough spots. Although it is not perfect and you can see the difference if you look closely, don't think it turned out too badly. PLUS I doubt anyone will be getting that close to inspect the wood! :) Luckily several local stores sell these frames should I ever need/want to perfect the look - or I could buy one online.
