If there are dings/dents which aren't too bad you will be able too remove them with a damp cloth and a warm iron.

You can get felt tip furniture touch up pens that may match. You can also buy student oil paints in burnt umber, raw umber, yellow ocre etc that you can mix to match the main body colour then oil up when dry. Oil paints can be built up to a thickness over time.
You can even mix stock or danish oil with the paint to tint it. It will take many light applications over many days. Do the hot iron thing first.

You cant seem to get decent Polystrippa since EU banned the best solvents but a complete strip and refinish with oil may be just as quick and look better in the end.
