How to Fix a Chipped Glass Coffee Table

Chipped glass is an inevitable risk that comes with owning a glass coffee table. Fortunately, as long as the chip is not too severe, it can be repaired with a few items commonly found in most households.

Steps to Fix a Chipped Glass Coffee Table:

  1. Clean the Area – Begin by wiping down the area with a rag to remove any dirt. For best results, spray the area with glass cleaner and wipe it off.
  2. Sand the Edges – Gently sand the edges around the chip using fine-grain sandpaper. This will help create a better surface to repair the chip.
  3. Apply Glue – Apply an appropriate adhesive to the chipped area. The type of glue you use will depend on the type of glass. For example, use cyanoacrylate adhesive (super glue) for thin sheet glass. If the glass is thicker, use polyvinyl acetate (PVA glue).
  4. Clamp the Area – After the glue has been applied, use a spring-action clamp to press the chipped area together. This will help the glue bond better.
  5. Allow Adequate Time To Dry – Let the glue dry for the recommended time frame before unclamping the area. If possible, leave it in the clamp for an additional 24 hours for better bonding.
  6. Wipe Down Again – Upon removal of the clamp, gently wipe down the entire surface of your glass coffee table. All chips should be repaired and no longer visible.

With these simple steps you can easily fix a chipped glass coffee table. Be sure to always use caution when handling glass, as it can easily shatter or break.
