Help! Single Mom


My daughter this morning some how or another ripped off the faux drawer on the bathroom cabinet. It was once held with what looks to be staples. What is the best way to put it back into place. I was afraid to use nails in fear of cracking the cabinet and then I thought of wood glue. Not sure. Please help me with this because it is a new cabinet.

Try a construction adhesive, ie Liquid Nails or Power Grab. Sand the area on the cabinet, use the adhesive then tape with painters tape to hold the drawer front in place while the adhesive dries.

Along with the adhesive, you could use some very short wood screws and install them on the inside of the drawer - towards the drawer front. Use screws short enough that they will not penetrate the drawer face (obviously).....

There's a kit you can buy that will turn that panel into a tilt out drawer. Half the work is already done.

3m double sided (automotive tape) works well... and although it will never fall off again it would be slightly easier to remove than const adhesive and wouldnt rip the wood apart.
