Furniture Fix-Up: How to Restore Your Favourite Pieces

We all have that one-of-a-kind piece of furniture that we simply can't let go of. Maybe it's the trusty oak wooden coffee table that's seen its fair share of pizza nights and movie marathons or the slightly wonky but oh-so-comfy armchair inherited from Gran. But time (and maybe a rogue glass of red wine) can take its toll.

Before chucking out the beloved pieces and embarking on a wallet-crushing shopping spree, let's explore the wonderful world of furniture repair and fix-ups!

DIY's For Fixing Furniture

There's a lot of magic to work with for the adventurous souls out there. Anything is possible with a little elbow grease and some readily available supplies.

Here's a look at some furniture repairs you can tackle all on your own:

The Wobbly Chairs:

Is your once-proud armchair looking worse for wear? Don't worry! Grab a screwdriver and tighten those loose screws — they're usually right under your nose. Wood glue can be your best friend if a broken leg is the problem.

Cracks and scrapes:

Got minor scratches? No problem! Walnut oil or a furniture crayon can do wonders to hide those blemishes. Some sanding and refinishing might be necessary for deeper scratches, but a little TLC goes a long way.

Fabric Furniture:

Spills happen — it's just a fact of life. But don't let a coffee stain ruin your favourite couch. Most fabric furniture can be refreshed with a good cleaning (just check the care instructions label first!). For stubborn stains, consider professional upholstery cleaning. It's an investment but much cheaper than replacing the entire couch.

Furniture Repair for the Serious Fixer-Upper

If your furniture needs more than a quick fix, fear not! There's a whole world of furniture restoration techniques waiting to be explored.
