How to repair Wood Furniture At Home by Pottery Barn


Furniture Repairs Made Easy This is our entryway bench and antique ride and today what I want to do I want to show how to how to repair some of these damages. We need a rough patch, a soft patch and the plastic card, the hard one and a wax stick and a touch up pen and and pretty much all these items available locally at your grocery store or
hardware store. Before we start and go ahead and work on that we look at the surface the first thing is to check on
the color tone, of the pen to see it’s matching to the surface that we will repair, and it’s a very very good match, here we have a lot of holes and it looks quite damaged and what you do is you take your wax stick and you rub in some wax and see how easy it is to fill it? Now we can see I’ve filled all these
holes of the damage and to test it now the plastic card drive or whatever you have, I just put the sharp edge here, that on the surface and we remove
the excess wax. Take your pad and you rub in the grain direction, and you clean up all the excess wax on the surface, it looks really amazing, there are just a few spots
where substrates of the wood is looking through, and what we do, we take our white touch up pen, dab a little bit, on the surface and just take your time look at how nice that looks, you let it dry for about two or three hours and then you can use it. We want to repair our Montego pedestal table in our Mahogany finish. We want to repair that really deep damage what we have here, we have the
mahogany color tone here burnishing here the dark area here, so the way we start out is
first Color tone all the very deep scratch with the Mahogany tone, you do that very very light, and rub away the excess material so you’ve blend it in right away. What we do first is we rub very hard with a lot of pressure, and just fill it, and then you remove the excess material, look at how clean that looks here. And then on the edge you just take your pad, and recreate the way you use the table edge,
and now you can see the difference from the Mahogany, expecially on the edge. We will start off first with a black edge, and we feather in the color tone, and now we’re using our mahogany color tone marker, we do very very small dabs, and
it blends in to the surrounding surface. Okay now we are done, with great results repairing
the furniture, It looks amazing the final result. Pottery Barn

    Thanks for an amazing video, I found it so interesting. I am fascinated by anything related to furniture. Can't wait to see more!

    this makes repairing furniture look fun^^

  • Paula Lane says:

    Although the scratch on the mahogany table looks much better, it still is very apparent that the table is damaged. Is that the best repair job one can expect?

  • dalleger says:

    This is pretty sad. I'd be out of business in a day if I tried to pull this off as a professional repair. What a joke!

  • dalleger says:

    @pjlaner Absolutely not… there's a right way to do this kind of repair, and this isn't it. Deep gouges usually require a "burn-in" repair where finish is melted into the damaged area, then fine tuning the grain pattern and color variations is done before protecting it with some sort of top coat that is feathered into the surrounding finish.

    Thanks for video

  • Millard Walker says:

    This is interesting and that gives me an idea to fix ours. It's not really good to look at, so hope I can repair it. Thanks for the video…

  • dalleger says:

    You're right. However, the results on the mahogany table are horrible. At the very least he could warm the wax stick on a thin putty knife to work it in more evenly before scraping with the credit card, then buff with a cloth before feathering in some color. It's much easier to control the wax this way with less waste and better results. Seriously… look how bad that gouge looks! With very little more effort or material, the results could be much better.

    As a person who does furniture repair for a living I must say that this is a terrible example of a method of repair. Anyone who attempts this method will not be satisfied. The fill will pull out very easily without proper coating and the color match will be very poor. Most certainly, the damage will not be hidden.

  • Nick Heisick says:

    Awesome video. Loved it. Professional furniture repair for scratches is a needless waste.

  • 1taylorgibson says:

    I bought a montego pottery barn table new for $1800 and after a few months i started getting streaky marks and waxy sticky residue on the tabletop. What mess. It is clearly wax as you can scrape it off with your fingernail. Looking at this video, i'm left thinking that they "repaired" it using this method before they sold it to me. I have tried to get pottery barn to fix the problem but all they do is tell me to clean it with a dry cloth. Pottery barn – shame on you.
