How to Fix a Broken Glass Coffee Table
Accidents happen, and unfortunately, sometimes, that means a broken glass coffee table. Not to worry! Fixing a broken glass coffee table can be an easy process if you follow these steps:
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Before you get started, you’ll want to make sure you have all of the supplies you need. You will likely need:
- Tape Measure
- Glass Sheet (optional)
- Safety Glass
- Caulking Gun
- Silicone Adhesive and/or Gasket Seal
- Razor Blade
Step 2: Remove Remaining Glass Pieces
Once you have all of the supplies, the next step is to remove any remaining glass pieces from the table. Carefully pick them up, being sure to wear gloves, and discard them in a safe and responsible manner.
Step 3: Measure and Cut the Replacement Glass
Now that you have removed the broken glass, you can measure and cut the replacement glass. Measure the table frame, then use the measurements to cut out a piece of safety glass that will fit the frame. If there is still a portion of the original glass intact, you can use it as a template to cut out your new glass piece.
Step 4: Attach the New Glass
Now it’s time to attach the new glass. First, you’ll want to make sure the area is clean and dry. Then, apply a coat of glue to the table’s frame and place the replacement glass on top. Secure the glass in place with silicone adhesive and/or gasket seal, and then use caulk around the edges for added support.
Step 5: Finish Up
Once the glass is attached, you’ll need to smooth the edges to match the original. Use a razor blade and sandpaper to file down the edges and make sure the glass piece fits snugly in the table frame.
Step 6: Enjoy Your Fixed Table
And now you’re done! Enjoy your newly fixed glass coffee table! With a little bit of patience and the right supplies, you can easily fix a broken glass coffee table.
