Feel an Idiot, how to Repair big Dent in MDF

Postby Missloulou » Thu Aug 29, 2019 9:01 am


Hoping someone can help. I am in the process of moving house and was gifting an ornament to a friend. As I moved the ornament, part of it fell off and hit a glass covered storage unit. (Feeling an idiot right now as my husband told me to leave it until he got home!) The glass is completely shattered and it has left a dent, roughly 7cm square in the mdf. It’s about 4cm deep.

The unit was a besta unit from ikea, and I have emailed them, in the meantime, to see if I can get replacement glass. Just waiting to hear back.

I was just wondering is there anyway to fix the dent? Images below, oh Lordy, what a mess!

Thanks for any help!
