Add Some Flair To Your Veneer Repair

I found this really cool chair on the side of the road by someone’s trash. The only thing I could find wrong with it was that the veneer on the back had begun to peel on one corner. It has been sitting in my house for about a year now, while I schemed up different ways to fix it. Ultimately I decided I wanted to repair it, but I wanted to customize it as well.

To get the result I wanted, I used iron-on veneer. It was rediculously easy and I love the result.
