Patio Chair Redo

imageimageI

I found some great vintage chairs to redo for my patio.  I couldn’t be trusted. Bud was possessed, got out his blow torch, torched and wire brushed the paint that was left.  He straightened the frames, rewelded a few areas, put new casters on several of the legs.  He primed and made beautiful new seats out of pine.  I did come out and started taping the metalwork while he went to bathroom.  This is my work, which occasioned him to say, “Shit, Honey!”  when he returned.  The first picture is his work, the second, mine.  Look at the beautiful pine white pine seats he made.  Isn’t he amazing?  We have $80 invested in these chairs.  Now, on to the table.  It is a sunflower mosaic on plywood, on a base he made about 30 years ago.  Pictures of that later.

  1. They BOTH look pretty damn good to me. He’s definitely got better skills than my husband. In fact, you may have just inspired a post about the lack of construction competence in my house (which has resulted in me having a pig’s leg on my kitchen work surface for the foreseeable future!).
