Interior "Wood" and "Trim" water damage question

Last season we had an "incident" where our kitchen drain pipe disconnected from the drain line under the slide in the kitchen. Some water came out from under the slide and pooled on the floor for about a minute until we noticed what was going on. We quickly dried the mess up but on parts of the trim that meet the floor where water touched we wound up with the damage in the attached picture about 2 weeks later.

It's not something that bothers me until I look at it and as we are thinking of selling to upgrade I'd like to fix it.....without ripping out the damaged areas and replacing.

Thought I would post here and see if anyone had an idea.

I had similar damage. My neighbor is a wood worker. We cut it above the damage and cut a piece of oak to fit the spot. He then routered it and put a nice design in the front of it. This was on the bottom of the slide out side trim. So we did both sides so it's matched.

Dodge Guy has a great idea. That vinyl covered MDF will not accept a finish. Loweís, Home Depot and Menards all have decorative Plinths for use at the bottom of door trim.

Would you be able to post a picture of what you did? Trying to envision it and for some reason, coming up short.

I don’t know if I have a picture. And we traded it in on the Georgetown. I’ll see if I can find something.

Quick easy fix.... find a crayon or sharpie the same color as the Vynil cover? color it in, you be surprised how it works. Your eyes won't be drawn to it. for someone that doesn't know it is there, will never notice it!

Cheers David

Yep, very similar to what we did. And itís real wood so it wonít do that again.

And yes a crayon will work. But itís not a permanent fix.

Brown wax shoe polish, like Kiwi, is also a quick way to hide the discoloring. The plinth idea is a great permanent fix, albeit a bit more work.

Here you go! Just put another layer of vinyl on.

I picked this color arbitrarily (I'm color-blind.). But it comes in many other colors and patterns. Search the internet for "wood grain contact paper".

We bought our with a similar issue, the 'paper' fake wood has lifted a bit at the floor level under the sink. I've been meaning to replace it for 2-years now


I did look at some nice pieces in Home Depot, it's on my 'back-burner' to-do list.

If your selling, sell. If your trading, trade.


If you sell and someone says something about it give $100.00 off the price that you have already added $100.00 to so you can give $100.00 off.


If you trade the dealer will not care one bit. NOT ONE BIT! They will sell it just like that and not think twice about it.


Don't sweat the small stuff especially if you are getting rid of it.
