MDF Veneer Sheets

Hi all,

I am wondering if mdf can be taken off existing particleboard easily (if yes, how so?). Also - if not, can another sheet be ironed/glued on over top of an existing piece? I am trying to cover an existing piece of furniture, but do not want to paint.

Jeff, welcome to the forums! MDF is medium density fiberboard, and removing it from a glued or nailed surface will probably destroy it or what it is glued to. Can you post a couple of pictures on a site such as and copy/paste the HTML code to your reply post? That way we can see exactly what you have and may offer a better way to do it.

By "MDF" i think you mean the veneer that is on the core material - if that is the case then you would probably be better off to fillin any low areas and putting a new piece of veneer on it.
1- get the new veneer make sure it has a paper backer on it, this is the easiest one to use.
2-Cut the veneer to size
3-Apply contact cement to both the new venner and the piece of furniture
4- press in place - use a rolling pin from the kitchen
5- trim and finish
