Viewing Project in Furniture & Refinishing > Finishing > Repairing
I recently bought two Edwardian bergere chairs that need everything redone - refinishing, recaning and reupholstering, and have been flip-flopping between doing the refinishing and caning myself or paying big bucks for a professional to do the work for me. Your video has given me the confidence to decide this is something I CAN do. Thanks!
I have finished many pieces of furniture before. Your instructions are amazing. Thanks
I have a beautiful antique semi upholstered arm chair. I don't know how to decide if the joints are repairable. The chair you worked on in the video was pretty wobbly. Is there anything more I can do if I find that any of the joints are more loose than this? Someone suggested using a toothpick as a shim to tighten the space. What do you think of this? Thanks! Mary
I guess we need a cute blonde for anything we do anymore ??
Why use the shellac? The Minwax wood finish acts as a sealer already. Great project, I would've used a polyurethane with less gloss to keep the wood feeling old but still nice.
Fantastic Ron, just about to start on two Wooden Tub chairs with leather seats that I found by the side of the road. Have never done this before and your video has me fired up and full of useful tips. Have shared you on my FB. Thanks, Paul from London UK.
