I need your help. I just purchased the sideboard you see in the photos. The problem with it is that the back panel between the bottom and top section is bent outwards (towards the wall so to speak), making it kind of banana or arch shaped. Not sure if you can see it in the pics; I am yet to collect the sideboard, so I can't provide better pictures at the moment.
How would you go about straightening the panel out? My first thought was to use a wallpaper steamer. Good or bad idea? Also, if I do that and it actually works, how do I fixate the panel? Should I do it with the panel in place or remove it? Do you think the panel carries any load? At first I was not sure if it's original, but upn closer examination I think it is. It wouldn't look good without it (otherwise I might remove it).
This particular model is new to me. Does anyone recognize it I am a bit perplexed over that panel, and its construction actually. I think I may be getting a bit of buyer´s remorse. I am not even sure how I should transport it. Do I take the top off?
Any advice is most welcome. Thanks.
