The ceramic door plate fell off a few years ago when one of the children slammed the door and I glued it back on with Gripfill adhesive – because it had cracked around the screw.
When I decided to get rid of the door plate for good (let’s face it, it’s a bit dated!) it pulled off the painted outer coat /veneer of the door, leaving a large ugly patch of timber.
After pondering for a while the best way to mend it, I figured that a thin coat of 2 part epoxy wood filler would be the best way to repair it.
It’s best to apply the wood filler directly to the damaged hardboard, without priming it as you get a better adhesion rate. Then all you need is a decorator’s knife, sand paper on a block and a bit of patience to get it looking as good as new again.
