Last night, our calendar was knocked off our wall. You can see that one side of the frame came completely off. Instead of buying a new frame, I decided to do a simple repair on this one.

I personally used Gorilla Glue because I like that it can be used on several materials, not just wood.

I just applied the glue in the corners, and lined it back up together. Luckily, there were no shattered pieces so it fit back together nicely.

It's best to lay the tape on one side first, make sure everything is together correctly, and then tape the other side.

Be sure to keep the tape tight. It will basically act as a clamp to keep the corner locked in place.

Once it dries, you can remove the tape and touch up any spots that need repainting.
