A fix it strategy for damaged furniture
My granddaughter decided to take the plugin out of the wall and lay it on this tabletop so she could plug in her iPad.
Unfortunately, the plugin leaked all over the table and took the finish off. Ugh!
Lucky for my daughter she has a Mom that can fix just about anything. YAY, Mom to the rescue!
The oil from plugins can literally remove the stain off your stain furniture.
There is something in the oil that eats away at the stain or paint. I’m not sure what it is but don’t despair I can help you fix it.
Unfortunately, you cannot just go over the damaged area. The first thing you need to do is sand the entire piece. I use medium-grit sandpaper using an electric sander. Make sure you sand in the direction of the wood grain.
This is the stain I applied to the furniture piece. I used a walnut color that matched the existing wood finish.
After you’re done sanding wipes the area with a clean cloth to remove all dust particles. Once it’s clean apply the stain using a clean cloth or sponge in the direction of the grain. If you want it a little darker, wait about 30 minutes, and apply a second coat.
Once the stain is dry apply two coats of Polyurethane. I used a satin finish on this. I applied it with a sponge roller. This will help protect.
Let it dry overnight and it’s good as new.
Look at that. It looks as good as new.
