Fixing a Glass Coffee Table
Glass coffee tables are stylish and delicate at the same time. As such, it can be intimidating when you need to understand how to repair one. But, repairing a glass coffee table doesn’t have to be difficult. All it takes is a few steps and the right material to get your table looking like new in no time. Here is how to properly fix a glass coffee table.
Gather the Supplies Needed
- Glass adhesive or sealer
- Glass cutter
- Glass cleaner
- Lint-free cloth
- Wax paper
- Painter’s tape
- Safety glasses
Cut the Replacement Glass
Use the glass cutter to cut a piece of glass the same size as the broken glass. If you don’t have a glass cutter, you can ask your local hardware store to cut the glass for you.
Clean both Pieces
Take a lint-free cloth and glass cleaner and thoroughly clean both pieces of the broken glass and the replacement. Make sure to remove any dirt, dust, or debris from the surface.
Place the Glass on the Wax Paper
After the glass is clean, place it on the wax paper. Place the painter’s tape on the edges of the glass and make sure the edges are sealed. This will help keep the glass pieces in place while you apply the adhesive.
Wear your safety glasses and apply the adhesive to the edges of the broken glass. Take the replacement piece of glass and carefully place it on top of the adhesive. Use the painter’s tape around the edges if necessary. Let the adhesive dry completely before continuing.
Polish the Edges
Once the adhesive has set, use the glass cleaner and a cloth to polish the edges of the glass. This will help make sure the edges are smooth and clean.
Enjoy Your Fixed Coffee Table
With these steps, you’ll have your glass coffee table looking like new in no time! All that’s left to do is enjoy your table in all its fixed glory.
