We believe it’s important to preserve good quality pieces of furniture. So often people might be inclined to throw out or donate a chair that has broken or has become loose and doesn’t seem stable anymore. Instead of getting rid of them, if you are willing to invest the time to fix them up, you can save furniture that may be family heirlooms and have sentimental value.
The most common furniture repair is chairs. They take a lot of daily abuse. We’ve created resources to teach you how to repair furniture. See How to Repair Loose Chair Joints for a detailed look at fixing chairs. We also have Tools and Tips to Fix Wooden Chairs.
The photos below show an example of a broken chair before and after a repair. Just because it’s broken, doesn’t mean it should be thrown away.
