Mrs. Toledo lives in San Bernardino, California. She called because she had seen my blog and she e-mailed me a small list of repairs. This job is one item on her repair list. Her oak clock fell down off the kitchen wall and fell on the new MDF molding. According the Burton Moldings website molding like MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is a type of hardboard, which is made from wood fibers glued under heat and pressure.
This post shows the eight steps to repair the damaged baseboard molding that been hit by a very heavy wall clock.
Step 1: Check out the damage, this time it was just a little 1/2 inch depression that exposed the MDF molding. The clock had scraped off the paint.
Step 2: Fig.1 shows the wall putty that was used to fill in the depression on the baseboard.
Step 3: Fig.2 shows the mixture of the putty with water until the mixture is like peanut butter.
Step 4: Apply painters blue tape on the baseboard, paying special attention to any curvature on the baseboard. Fig.3 shows that the putty was placed over the depression. The tape keeps the putty in a confined area on the baseboard.
