Repairing a Chipped Glass Coffee Table

Glass coffee tables may be stylish, but when they are chipped, they can become an eyesore and potentially dangerous. Fortunately, it is possible to repair a chipped glass coffee table in a few simple steps with minimal cost and effort.

What You Will Need:

  • Glass Glue specifically designed for use with glass
  • Emery cloth
  • Masking or Painter’s Tape

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Clean and dry the chipped area thoroughly.
  2. If the chip is deep and jagged, you may need to use the emery cloth to round off the edges so they are less sharp.
  3. Next, cover the chip with the masking or painter’s tape, making sure it is completely sealed.
  4. Once the tape is securely places, add a few drops of the glass glue onto the chipped area.
  5. Once the glue is in place, remove the tape and allow the glue to dry completely.
  6. Once the glue is completely dry, use a razor blade to remove any excess glue or filler from the surface of the table.

Tips and Warnings

  • Be sure to use only glass glue; glue designed for other surfaces will not work for glass.
  • Be sure to use only small amounts of glue and not to over fill the chip; too much glue may harm the surface of the coffee table.
  • Be sure to give the glue enough time to dry properly; this will ensure that the repair lasts as long as possible.
  • Be careful when removing the excess glue and filler; they may be sharper than expected and can potentially cause injury.
