Adhesive for Faux Wood

Posted by scarab4life (My Page) on

I bought one of those assemble-yourself headboards from Target for about $100. However, after moving it around a few times, it came apart. Can anyone recommend some type of "cement" or filler I can use to keep the metal posts in place so the faux wood pieces stay together. I really like the headboard and would hate to have to replace it. Thanks

RE: Adhesive for Faux Wood

have you tried F26 or Gorilla Glue? I prefer F26 simply because Gorilla Glue expands after it is applied and you have to keep pressure on it for a while.

I have always had very good luck with F26 and the guy who built our cabinets swears by it. He helped DH repair the foot rest on his recliner where a screw had stripped out. He used F26 and it has worked like a charm!

Be sure to read and follow the instructions exactly.

Although you can buy the size that fits a caulk gun, I bought the size that is a tad over 1 ounce. I got it at Home Depot or Lowe's.
