simple and useful tips to help restore damaged furniture

Most often, furniture is made from solid wood or wood-based materials. Like any other item in the household, it breaks down quite easily and deteriorates in every possible way. It is extremely costly to constantly purchase new furniture, and it is not very pleasant to use and look at the already damaged furniture. Therefore, it is very important to be able to carry out your own repairs.

Backing torn laminated fragments

Putting back a torn piece of laminated fiberboard or chipboard is not as difficult as it might seem. To do this, simply put the fragment back, thoroughly greasing it with PVA glue. Immediately after this, the area to be restored is wrapped as tightly as possible with cling film. The load is placed on the board. In this position, she is left for several hours. At the end, the film is removed, and the crack in the laminate is hidden with a wax stick of a suitable color.

Self-tapping hole restoration

If a large chip has formed in the place where the bolt or self-tapping screw should be, then cold welding and epoxy clay can be used for restoration. The two-component composition is thoroughly mixed, after which it is put in place of the torn piece of wood material. In this case, you can immediately install the previously dropped fasteners. Until the composition becomes solid, it must be leveled. Once the resin has dried, it can be painted over.

Restoration of small chips laminating layer

After cutting the chipboard, very often small chips remain on the laminating layer. You can fill them up with a wax crayon of a suitable color. If you make it white, then instead of wax, you can completely use a regular concealer.

Through hole restoration

During drilling or when screwing in the self-tapping screw, did you deepen more than necessary? The main thing in this case is to find and save the fragments of the breakaway laminating composition. Next, the sawdust that appears from the surface is removed and a small amount of glue is applied to the place of the defect. When the glue begins to dry, chipped fragments of the laminating layer are neatly stacked in it. Press down on the restoration site with something even and heavy.

Extension of wood material at the torn hinge

A rich, but generally not complicated restoration procedure lies ahead. For work, you need epoxy resin, dry gypsum putty and a suitable filler, such as fine sawdust. The restoration of the facade of a wooden product is carried out in several stages. From plastic and wooden elements, it will be necessary to build equipment, into which a thick, sticky mass is subsequently poured. After hardening, the restored area is cleaned and painted.
