Tuesday, February 28, Back to doing what I do best, some new shop pics and yes.

I have way too much inventory in storage, which we need to eliminate, but this was the proverbial "bird in hand". I have two of these potential "beauties" to refinish so I needed to get at least one up and running

Vintage Rattan Furniture Refinishing
Parts of it were damaged with some deep gouges and years of rough wear, but it was well-built so it remained structurally sound. So we stripped off the existing finish, patched up the gashes and then did a multi-tone finish using stain and a variety of paint colors. The challenge was to use just enough paint to cover up the damaged spots without covering up the beautiful pecan wood grain. Look at the back edge of one of the boards on the furniture to see if it is veneered or not. Our piece was veneered with what looked to be a pecan wood So we had to strip off the finish.

To truly restore a piece of furniture you need to research and duplicated exactly the way the furniture was finished when it was first made. You would have to use exactly the same stain and the same finishing agent. I did NOT do that for my table.
