Glass coffee tables can become cracked or broken due to wear and tear, accidents, or rough handling. Fortunately, fixing a cracked coffee table is simple and often requires minimal supplies. Here’s what you need to know to get your table looking good as new.
These are the tools you’ll need to repair a cracked coffee table:

- Masking paper
- Cotton swab or cloth
- Safety goggles
Now that you have all the necessary supplies, let’s begin the repair process.
Step 1: Remove the Glass
Using the glass cutter, carefully remove the cracked piece of glass from the top of the table. Use the masking tape to secure the glass in place as you cut. Remove the piece of glass and discard it.
Step 2: Clean the Table
Before applying the new piece of glass, you’ll need to clean the surface of the table. Use the glass cleaner and cotton swab or cloth to gently scrub away any dirt and residue.
Step 3: Cut the Replacement Piece of Glass
Measure the size of the gap in the table, then use the glass cutter to cut a new piece of glass to fit. Line the replacement piece of glass up with the gap and use the masking paper to secure it in place.
Step 4: Apply the Adhesive
When you’re ready, apply the glass adhesive to the edges of the glass and gap. Use the windshield repair kit to fill in any cracks or holes in the glass.
Step 5: Let it Dry
Leave the table to dry overnight or for at least 8 hours. After the adhesive has dried, clean the glass again with the glass cleaner and cotton swab.
