How to Replace a Glass Coffee Table Top
If you’re looking to give your glass coffee table a fresh new look, replacing the top is an easy way to do it. Follow these simple steps and you’ll have your glass coffee table like new in no time.
1. Purchase the Replacement Glass
The first thing you need to do is purchase the replacement glass top. You can buy glass cut-to-size at any local hardware store.
2. Measure the Old Glass
When you get the new glass, you’ll need to measure the old glass by taking an accurate length, width and depth measurement. This will help make sure your new glass top matches the size of your old one.
3. Remove the Old Glass
Once you have the new glass top, carefully remove the old one by unscrewing the frame and gently lifting it out. Take extra care when lifting out the glass as it is fragile and can easily be broken.
4. Put in the New Glass
Now, place the new glass in the frame and make sure it fits. If the new glass doesn’t fit, you may need to trim it with a glass cutter before placing it in the frame.
5. Secure the New Glass
Once you have the new glass in place, securely screw it back in by using a drill or screwdriver. Now your new glass top is in place and your coffee table is looking great!
Here are some tips to keep in mind when replacing a glass coffee table top:
- Wear protective gloves when handling the glass
- Place a cloth underneath the glass top to protect the furniture from scratches
- Cut the new glass carefully using a glass cutter to make sure it fits properly
- Always secure the new glass tightly in the frame to prevent it from moving around
