Hi everyone… happy Tuesday to you!
Yesterday I was in the hospital for a minor out patient procedure. Thankfully the procedure was only exploratory and the end results – perfect! Yaaay… one more thing off my mind! Although the sedation drugs they administered were a wild-ride while on them, I’m feeling a bit wiped out today. Soooo, Quick-Tip-Tuesday is going to be short and sweet. But I promise, it’s still a real gem when working with Bondo, Wood Putty, or Plastic Wood to repair missing pieces of your furniture!
When using ANY type of filler to re-create a corner or straight edge, clamp a smooth flat piece of scrap wood sprayed with WD-40 under your repair.
WD-40 is an excellent lubricant that prevents fillers from sticking…and makes it easy to remove once the Bondo or Wood Filler is dry!
I’m milk-painting this piece now (she’s going to be mellow-yellow-gorgeous!), so I’ll share the full details on this wood-leg repair in my next post!
Do you have any Bondo or Filler tips when repairing furniture? I love all your comments, questions and suggestions so keep ’em coming!
Enjoy your day and have fun with your next project!
