Thomasville end table puppy damage
On the Spot Furniture Revival llc
January 20, 2013 in Before & After
This end table normally retails for $399 from Thomasville furniture. It was purchased for $10 on Craigslist because of the puppy chew damage. After just a few hours rebuilding the corner and applying new finish, this table is good as new!

I knew this could be done, but how did you get the finish to match so very perfectly? Great find and save. Let's keep all this good stuff out of the landfill.

Thanks all! Ramona, the color matching comes from lots of practice and studying color theory. I love hearing clients amazed comments when I'm done. They almost always believe their pieces are destined for a land fill. It's a lot of fun educating and getting the word out of can be done to save their furnishings.

My 240 lb English Mastiff had a (bad day) and did a job on our teak coffee table too. 1/4"-1/2".

What material do you build with?

This is why we need professionals like you. Great job!

I have an end table that someone spilt soda on and no one notice until the finish was ruined. I thought it was beyond saving. I called some one to fix it and they did a fabulous job. It ended up costing me less than their original quote, because the person who did the work knew what they were doing. Of course, I was thrilled.

How do I interview someone for doing this sort of repair on my stuff? I know how to refinish up to a point, but think it will be simpler for someone to come and fix my nicks and gouges than for me to get all the different finishes and experiment around.

rprenti-if it is 1/4-1/2" deep you can use bondo. If it's 1/4-1/2" long, I use a hot knife and a hard wax. I haven't seen these in DIY market though. If it's bothersome, look for a local furniture repair company. It's a small repair, so it shouldn't cost much.

Ramona-check your area for furniture repairers and ask for references, check portfolios. As is true in many fields, there are DIY products out there that can do an ok job but professionals have access (and training) with a lot of methods and techniques. It might just be worth the time and money to hire out than mess around with so-so products.
