Repairing scratches or damage on a wooden table

A piece of furniture as a table is used regularly, the risk of damage therefore is quite large. Accidents do happen, for example grease stains, scratches, dents or burnt burns, quickly in the wooden table. Such damage can be very disturbing, because a table is still a prominent piece of furniture and the damage always keep covered with a tablecloth is often not an option. Fortunately, there are several ways to repair the damage to a table.

Candle Wax removal of a wooden table

One of the problems is spot of wax. If a candle on the wooden top of a table dripping candle wax which solidifies quickly and this leaves a spot. Remove excess wax is often not the problem, either by stabbing it simply with, for example, a bank card. But when using a sharp object, it might scratch the table. After the excess wax is removed, however, there is still a stain on the table of the candle wax. This spot we can be gently removed with a cloth soaked. Make sure that you benzine first on a hidden spot of the table; there are many different treatments of a wooden piece of furniture and there is a chance that the benzene reacts with these finishes. If the benzene leaves no damage on the invisible part of the table, the stain can be erased. Make sure that the stain is sometimes rinsed thoroughly, so that there is no residual benzene remain seated on the table. Another way to remove the wax is by rinsing it off under a continuous stream of very hot water. This allows the solidified wax will become liquid again and go off the tabletop. This method operates only when the spot is close to the edges of the table, as the candle wax elsewhere on the table can turn cold and re-solidifies.

Remove scratches

Scratches are also common on wooden tables. Of course silverware or other sharp objects quickly can leave a scratch. Fortunately, you can also treat such scratches without sanding or painting the entire table. For removing scratches in wooden tables, there are several repair kits for sale, all of which work on the principle of filling with similar color substance.For example, it was colored with different tubes, which can be filled by color in the scratch, after which the excess wax can be removed. Such treatment can make a scratch much less visible than an untreated scratch, but the best way is still always the most labor-intensive: sanding and finishing the table again.

Reviews fire in a wooden table

Also burns at a wooden table are easy to occur. Often this is caused by objects such as a gourmet set, where the heat may cause in the table. Such burns are extremely disfiguring for the table and are difficult to remove. The problem of burning in a wooden piece of furniture is that they often sit deeper than just the surface. To check this you can look at how hard the wood in the center of the fire place. If the wood that do not have the normal structure and has the normal hardness, it is possible that the fire spot is just on the surface. If the burn is not too deep, the table at which depth can be properly sanded and then re-finished. Be careful however that there should be sanded so deep until the burn became completely invisible. If the place is too deep, there is no other option than all the affected wood put away as much as possible, fill the hole to give an opaque finish to cover the repair.

Repair dents in a wooden table

Some dents on a wooden table can be recovered, although this does not apply to dents caused by objects that are bumped against it. Some distortions or dents in a wood table can also be caused by other moisture than the surrounding wood; for instance, this longitudinal section is exposed to a hot object. In such a case, the wood become drier, thus it shrinks. Such a damage can be recover by re-adding moisture to the dent. This may be by placing a drop of water on the dent and heating it after a half hour carefully to keep the tip of a soldering iron in the droplet. Please note here, however, that the bolt does not touch the table. Dents caused by objects which have come up against it, can be reset only by filling them and the table to work again. This work is time-consuming and does not always have the desired result because the filler is always visible, unless the table is finished opaque.

Repairing broken or loose wallpaper

Every wall can also incur wallpaper damage. The wall may be damaged by objects, or by releasing the wallpaper itself. Luckily, to repair such damages, you will not have to directly re-decorate the whole wall or room

Repair loose wallpaper

If not enough glue was used in the wallpaper, or if the wall glue is sucked up too much, it can cause loose corners or areas. If this is so, is not a problem but it is important that we work carefully and cleanly to solve it. First, gather the right materials. For example, there is required a putty knife, wallpaper glue, a roller and a small brush. Grab the first putty knife and gently insert the loose piece of wallpaper slightly further apart. The aim is that the entire piece that is not properly secured can be re-glued. If the loose wallpaper slightly further is gently loosened, make the new adhesive with a small brush on the back side of the wallpaper can be lubricated. It may be that, for example, loose wallpaper at a seam is concerned, wherein the tassel is inconvenient. A solution for this is, for example, to lubricate the adhesive on a different putty knife stabbing behind the wallpaper. With a putty knife, it is indeed easier to find out the joints with a small brush. If the adhesive on the back of the wallpaper, wallpaper can be attached to the wall. Press the wallpaper right to use and with the roller. This proportional pressure can be exerted on the wallpaper. Often there are some glue under the wallpaper in this process. That’s not bad, but it is advisable to wipe the glue away immediately with little water. When the glue dries up this is difficult.

Sores in repairing or removing wallpaper

Of course it is not always the case that the part of the wallpaper that is loose is also effective on a seam or an angle. Sometimes there are small bubbles or blisters in the wallpaper. These are fortunately good to get away, although the method has a small difference in the method of loose corners or seams. If there are bubbles in the wallpaper, it is important to take a very sharp hobby knife, a pair of putty knives and a roller. Hold the hobby knife and carefully cut a straight line into the vesicle. Note that the pattern of the wallpaper is interrupted as little as possible. For the cutting, it is therefore not always convenient in order to get hold of the exact center of the vesicle in the wallpaper, or to cut vertically. If there is a slice in the wallpaper, the wallpaper glue can on the rear side of the wallpaper are lubricated. First use the putty knife to loosen the vesicle and then use spatula with some wallpaper paste to smear behind the wallpaper. Once this is done on both sides of the slice, the wallpaper can again be pressed against the wall. Also in this case, the roller can be used to print on the wallpaper proportionate, and that the glue residues need to be removed quickly with a damp sponge or cloth.

Damage as a hole or tear in the wallpaper

Another loss could be that the profile of the wall is damaged, or that there is a crack or hole on the wall. The drilling of a hole, for example, results in a hole which is not visible as long as there is something is hung. There are several ways to fix the wallpaper with a damage such as a hole. One of the ways, the most simple, is to simply remove the entire track loose and a new job to hang wallpaper. For that, there are, however, plenty of wallpapers are available and should be approached cautiously when removing the damaged track. Another way is to tear a piece of a remnant wallpaper loose. Here, the various layers of the wallpaper are visible and the upper layer will be scratched. This top layer can then be pasted over the hole in the wall. Mind you, this only works for wallpaper texture. Also, it is possible to use a piece of wallpaper remainder over the hole or damage to keep the back and then with a sharp knife to cut out a square wallpaper through both layers. The old wallpaper will be removed from the wall and the new square can be neatly pasted there.
