How To Repair Veneer

Today on How To Friday, Gene shows you how to repair veneer! Don't look past those piece of furniture that need a little extra love, we'll teach you what you need to know.  

*Note that this process works best on a piece that will be painted, not stained*

Take these steps to repair veneer:

  1. Start by removing any hardware on the piece
  2. Clean the piece with Clean Slate and a lint-free rag
  3. Next we are going to repair the loose veneer. You can use wood glue or a quick dry gel glue. Be careful as you do this because you don't want the veneer to pop off. To get deep into the crevices you can use a razor blade or syringe. Tape down the parts where you've applied glue to apply pressure. 
  4. Next apply wood filler with a putty knife to the areas with chips. We like a putty knife because it helps with a smooth application. After that dries, you'll sand it with 220 grit sand paper. Repeat the process until the profile of the wood filler matches the trim of the piece. 
  5. Remove the tape once your glue is dry. Then take a lint-free rag and dust off the piece. 
  6. Now it's time to paint! Pick your favorite color from our One Step Paint line, paint the piece, and Enjoy The Bragging Rights!
