Veneer furniture, like any other, ages and gets damaged over time. That is why it is worth knowing how to renovate veneer furniture. Renovation of veneered furniture consists primarily in repairing the old veneer. If the veneer is damaged, it should be torn off and a new one glued on.
Once the old veneer has been torn off, the furniture needs to be sanded in order to ensure that the new veneer will bond firmly to the wooden material. Possible cavities should be filled.
