How I Repaired A Chipped Baseboard

$0.00
20 Minutes

My hubby and the dogs were goofing around the other day, and knocked my vanity chair over. It took quite a chunk out of the baseboard.

A chunk flew across the floor, so I grabbed it. It kind of looked like a lost cause, but I thought I would try and glue it back in and see how it turned out.

Here is how it looks now. Sure beats replacing the whole board! I think we can live with this, don't you?

It is hardly noticeable from that distance. My hubby had a hard time finding it! The time it took to fix it was about twenty minutes, not including dry time for the glue.

    could also use Minwax Professional Wood Filler. It's a 2 part epoxy, over fill and shape best you can , then sand to shape. Great for repairing rotted wood outside.

    Good to know Clay. I'm sure it won't be the last chip or ding around here! Thanks for the tip! Val
