Particleboard furniture is popular and inexpensive, but it's also prone to chipping and flaking. You can seal small chips or cuts by applying a layer of Elmer’s glue to the area, and then smoothing it out with a piece of plastic wrap, making sure to wipe off any excess. If desired, once the glue has dried you can use a permanent marker to make the repair the same color as the surrounding area. You also can use a half-and-half mixture of glue and water as a sealer for raw particleboard or chipboard before cutting.
