Furniture glass can make any home look chic and clean. However, the delicate nature of these items makes them vulnerable to chipping and breakage, which can degrade the beauty and grace of the pieces.

Repairs of Glass Break Marks

Full glass breaks will probably send you to professionals for help. Chips, on the other hand, can easily be managed. Before you take the next step, it's a good idea to pop on some eye protection like goggles.

Clean the Glass

To start your repairs, wash or wipe the surface dry, cleaning any dust and other particles from the area.

Sand

Get a sandpaper with a grit of 320. Cut it out so you can wrap it at the eraser part of a pencil. Hold your glass furniture and gently rub the sandpaper across the chipped section.

Once it's looking a little better, change your sandpaper into a finer grade—600-grit ideally. Rub it thoroughly but gently on the affected area, then when you're happy with the result, get a cotton cloth to wipe away any glass debris.

Polish

Finally, use a brush or cloth to dab on some silver polish and let it dry. While you've got it out, take a look around the edges of the furniture to see if there are any other areas in need of a shine!
