Removing damaged laminate from furniture 

This dresser had some damaged laminate did not want to fix it. So removing is a great option. 

You will need:

  • Iron
  • Metal scrapper 
  • Paper towels 
  • Sander

I bought this iron from the dollar store for $10.00 you don’t want to use your good iron, because you don’t want glue on it. 


Set the iron to the highest setting,then apply to the laminate. Leave for about 20 seconds then use the scrapper to remove the laminate. The iron heats the glue underneath and makes it easier to remove. 


Scrap the excess glue off the wood


For stubborn glue use a paper towel and lay it over the glue heat tit up then use scrapper to remove


Then sand and you are done

Apply Stain right over the vinyl.  I always use General Finishes Gel Stains.  They are easy to use and they have lots of choices of colors.  My ultimate favorite is the Java Gel Stain, and that what was used on here. #GeneralFinishes #DrSeuss

Let it Dr for 24 Hours then use a Razor blade to lift off the vinyl lettering.
