From Ugly to Beautiful

Yesterday I talked about Alyson's Cottage and the great work they do in restoring furniture.

I just wanted to give an example. Above and below are some chairs I have. There are 5 of these total; so far, 3 have been restored, 2 still to go. All were rusted closed when I got them; they had been sitting in a shed and an abandoned silo for over 30 years. Not the best place for furniture. They all had lost their wood to rot and they had been graffitied on. I went to my neighbor and asked what he could do. I said I wanted them red with wood slats for their seats.

Gus got them sand blasted, then painted (airbrushed) them with enamel paint, several coats, and then he clear coated. Next, he made slats for the chair seats; not an easy feat as the holes had weird spacings he had to work around. Each piece of wood had to be cut and drilled special for its placement on the chair. Look closely at photos of the red chairs, and you will see what I mean. Then, lastly, he sealed the wood and attached it to the chair.

I think they are just wonderful. Take a look for yourself.

I just love the way these old metal and wood folding chairs came out.
