    get a piece of marble cut that looks nice on top,

    or use a belt sander to burr the whole thing down,coarse first,,then fine,then rub with pumice paper for ultra smooth finish.

    or try scratch treatment from home depot,,the shelf has likely ten different choices

    You can’t really “remove’ them without refinishing the piece. But you can make them much less visible with a scratch hiding product like old english or Tibetan almond stick.

    Old English scratch cover, or sand the entire thing down and refinish.

    You scratched down to the REAL COLOR OF THE WOOD. The wood is probably pine and is stained. So you need either dark brown shoe polish (that come in those metal flat discs you can buy at a grocery store in the hardware section) or in a shoe store as it is a wax paste and the color you get is OXFORD BROWN as that is the darkest brown. Use a small rag cloth and dip it into the shoepolish and then rub over the scratch. and then polish up with some more cloth rag . If it is as big as a facecloth then you got a lot of rag to polish with. to take off the excess where it is not needed. And you polish up right away. This will make the light scratch as dark as the dark parts so hardly noticeable. You scratched it. Now you got to live with it. At least it won't be as obvious. With a quick glance, a person does not see it if it is dark. That is all you can do and costs you $1. and 15 minutes of time. It is permanent. Oh well. You can always put a Dollie over it. A small piece of ornamental cloth like a table cloth but made for dressers...to protect the surface and hide the damage. Or use a small tea towel.
