HOW TO REMOVE WATER MARKS - blue maple dresser

I love mixing different shades of blue.
This time I mixed equal parts of bright white and Provence, both ASCP colors.
It's a pretty medium blue shade and I am very happy with the finished look. 

Things are starting to get back to normal around here, normal being a relative term to our way of life.
Lots of power tools, painting, styling furniture, photography, and furniture hunting.


In the hunting part of that last statement I acquired this solid maple dresser.

I fixed a bunch of stuff and replaced a missing wood piece.

I have never been fond of the screw covers used on this era of maple furniture,
and one was missing on the leg of this piece, so I fixed that with a cover up.

Now to the reason you came by ...
  *HOW TO*
remove those white water marks from your furniture.

Use a hot iron on a lint-free cloth placed over the stain
moving back and forth.
I did leave my iron in place for some of the more stubborn areas.
Be cautious with your first attempt.

It did take some time for these water marks to come out but it really works.
I also found if I let the area cool between attempts it would work better.

BEFORE ....................................... AFTER

And yes I painted the top in the end but have been waiting for a good piece (or bad) to
show you how to do this.
