How to Easily Fix Broken Drawer Stops On Your Wooden Furniture #TuesdayTipsWithFallon


Haha - goodness! Now that you’re past the video and bloopers, I have written out the process below to make it easy for you to follow.


How to fix wooden drawer stops:

As you can see in the picture, the drawer stop is missing which causes the drawer to push back too far in the dresser. Sometimes this can cause the drawer to fall out or cave in.

This is very common in vintage and antique wooden furniture, but there is a quick and easy way to fix this problem with a paint stirrer!


Step 1:

Measure the paint stirrer to match the length of one of the drawer stops that is currently on the furniture.


Step 2:

Clamp the paint stirrer to a table and cut off the area that you marked on your paint stirrer. I like to use a coping saw, but you can use whatever works best for you.


Step 3:

Glue the piece that you cut-off with Titebond and place it on the old nail hole and/or around location that the broken drawer stop came off of. Clamp the piece down so it dries well.


Step 4:

Make sure the location is okay and your new drawer stop doesn’t move. Once the glue is nice and dry I like to paint the drawer stop so it blends well with the rest of the piece.

That’s it! This such is an easy way to fix drawer slides without spending too much money or time on them. It also give your piece a more complete and professional look in the end!
