    Photos would help. If it's not damaged, it can be reglued and secured with heavy objects.

    If I were to fix it I would strip the area that is water damaged and replace with a veneer of the same wood type and sand other area and stain both the new part and old part.

      @Pat it would help you more if you start your own thread with pictures of the whole piece and close ups of the damaged area.

    Just take off and redo.Be easier in the long run than trying to repair.

    I've read where people have pulled off any loose parts and used an electric sander with very rough sand paper to sand down to remove the rest then go to finer to finish to have a smooth finish once you get down to the actual wood. Then paint it and seal it. Hope this helps you.
