How to Fix a Broken Glass Coffee Table
Do you have a broken glass coffee table that needs repair? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to fix it yourself!
Step 1: Get the Necessary Tools and Supplies
In order to fix your broken glass coffee table, you’ll need the following tools and supplies:
- E6000 or comparable adhesive glue
- Heavy leather gloves
- Various-sized clamps
- Safety glasses
- Glass cleaner
- Lint-free cloth
Step 2: Clean the Shards of Glass
Put on your safety glasses and heavy leather gloves. Use the lint-free cloth to carefully pick up any large shards of glass and place them in a safe place away from children and animals.
Step 3: Use Glass Cleaner
Spray the surface of the glass with a glass cleaner and wipe it off with the lint-free cloth. Make sure you get rid of all dirt and dust, as any left behind will make it difficult for the glue to stick.
Step 4: Apply Adhesive Glue
Using the adhesive glue, apply a thin layer to the broken edges of the glass. Be sure to apply enough glue so it will seal and hold the pieces of glass together but not so much that it oozes out.
Step 5: Clamp the Pieces Together
Using the clamps, carefully clamp the pieces of glass together until the glue has dried. You may need to use a few different sizes of clamps to ensure the pieces fit together properly.
Step 6: Let the Glue Dry
Let the glue thoroughly dry for at least 24 hours before handling.
And there you have it! You’ve successfully fixed your own broken glass coffee table with these simple steps. Enjoy your handiwork!
