Can this be fixed? Veneer China Hutch

angelaintxAugust 8, 2011

I just bought the matching dining room table from this lady. I would like to buy the hutch but I am unsure of the extent of the damage and whether or not it can be fixed. Thanks for any advice!

Probably, but I doubt it will be a DIY project.

You would need to have a pro refinisher do that.

My grandfather would help- he's been a woodworker for years. I am just wondering if it's worth around $175 or so...

From what I see, this is well within the range of a touch up. A little sanding, a little burn-in, a little toner, a little lacquer.

It won't necessarily look brand new, but will look fine from normal observation distance.

But I agree, call in a pro, it's not necessarily a DIY project due to skills and materials needed.

Of course, you could strip and refinish, but that's an order of magnitude more time and cost.

Can be done if you have the proper tools, supplies and the technical knowledge.

Doesn't look too complicated to me - I'm not a pro, but I think I could make that look OK. Depends on whether you're handy or not, and how much of a perfectionist you
are :-)

In terms of what to pay for it, 175 is not bad, or maybe even pretty good; it's a nice piece. I like the vanity behind it too!
