    What kind of wood is it?

    To be honest I’m not completely sure that it is wood. It’s a Ashely northshore bed set if you want to look it up.

    When all else fails try paint.

    You could try some Minwax PolyShades. Apply with a artist brush. Might take a couple coats to get the color right.

    Should I primer it or anything?

    I’m thinking some it may just be veneer and the trim
    Be resin?

    No priming. Poly shades is a tinted transparent finish. The more you put on the darker it gets.

    Probably so.
    Going take some tinkering to get the bad spots to look like the original finish. But close will look much better than the yellow you have now.

    You won’t need primer, but wipe it down good with acetone to get all the crayon wax off

    You’ll have to play around with it, the trick is to get it as good as possible.

    Ashley makes intentionally disposable furniture with very short dutability. Just go read the 99% of reviews of such on Houzz. Discard and move on.

    A little touch-up and you can get a few more years out of it.

    I would think crayon is more of a temporary repair. I would say some kind of stain would be the way to go.

    This might be your best bet.

    This is true.

    Yeah no kidding , unless it’s falling apart no need to get rid of it , hopefully he finds his answer to get it fixed /touched up.

    Here’s a little update with 3 coats of the minwax polyshade. Should I have used a primer?

    From what I can tell it looks pretty good.

    Matching is a difficult process, even if you’re experienced. If the contours/lines/profile of the wood have been interupted by damage, it’s impossible. You get as close as you can and live with it.
