I am in the process of painting my master bedroom furniture. The furniture is made by Pulaski and the original finish was a dark stain. As reflected in the picture attached, in removing the trim and rosettes from the dresser, nightstands and armoire there was quite a bit of damage done. I believe the easiest way to repair the damage would be to apply a wood veneer but would appreciate any input anyone may have.

Thank you,

Jennifer Brunelle

If indeed you are painting and not staining, then I recommend polyester auto body filler. (Bondo)

If you will be staining and adding a clear coat finish, then veneer or wood filler may be more appropriate.

I think there are limits for photos on a user’s first post… so that is probably why no photo attached.

Would applying wood veneer work?

Have your say...
