I have a beautiful particle board bookcase and got damage by water. Is there a way to fix it?
Once water damaged and it swells, not much can be done. If still in one piece, paint it and call it a day. Or hunt for a new one at a local secondhand shop or a Habitat Re Store.
Maria...l agree to paint anyway. I have one l love..got wet..painted & l still love!
You could also ModPodge some decorative papers onto it and seal with a clear acrylic paint, but the selling is permanent. You could also use stencils after painting to change it up even more.
