Veneer Repair Series: Post 3

Here it is, the last video in the series. I’ll post the reFreshed wardrobe tomorrow so, stick around for all the closeup pics!

As I mentioned in the video, you can purchase Bondo at your local home improvement store. Here is the Bondo product carried by Home Depot and Lowes:

  1. I would love to see the finished project! That color was beautiful and the piece looked amazing. :) Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi and thanks for the tutorial! I have two pieces that have been in the family for a long time and found their way to me but with a great deal of damage to the veneer. Pieces of it literally fall off without anything even touching them! I have never tried to take on a project like this and am nervous! I have a few questions. Did you wait for the paint to dry completely before distressing? Also is their a specific kind of paint I should use, such as latex, interior, outdoor…you get what I mean right? Thanks again!

    • Hi Joyce! Thank you for your kind words and welcome to the blog! My first bit of advice is BE FEARLESS! Find something small to practice on before you begin spreading the bondo, just so you can get a feel for it. There’s nothing you can’t remove! To your questions…yes, I allowed the paint to dry completely. I used latex paint with Websters Chalk Paint Powder mixed in. This makes for a chalky paint that is easy to distress with water. I use flat or matte interior paint for the best results. I love Benjamin Moore but you can use any brand! All the best to you! Please share your results! xo
