A few weeks ago, I wrote about working on those projects I had been pushing to the back-burner. Well, today I finally can check off redoing our desk chair. With the Chuck Wagon Gang tuned in I made my chair over, strolled down memory lane and almost had a prayer meeting at the same time....
the Chuck Wagon Gang will do that for ya...
The chair is about 10 years old. I had purchased the chair at our local Lowe's Home Improvement Store. I liked the classic styling of the chair and I was happy to see it carried the Basset Furniture label, which is or maybe I should say was a company just over in the next county that many folks in this area worked for. speaking of Basset Furniture Company I would be a lie to say if they are even in operation in the U.S. at all.
With ten years of many rough and rowdy kids and just simply,a many a behinds spending ours sitting in it the poor chair looked worse than rough. It had reached the point of shame.
Do ya see??
I'm ashamed..I'm ashamed...
The chair is still very sturdy except the arms had a little waggle in them so I was surely going to tighten everything up while I was at it. I had almost given hope of finding an
to fit but as luck would have it after a little digging through the junk draw, I was in business.
I removed the seat. I decided to give it a light sanding and put a coat of polyurethane with a little bit of stain on the chair as well. I might be the only one but I kind of liked the wear in the wood on the chair so I thought not to really cover it up. I just cleaned it up and gave it some protection.
Here you can see Roscoe trying to be my helper.
Do you wonder what he's helping me do?
He's eating some crumbs that flung out of the chair cushion.
All-in-all, I feel pleased with the end results.
I want to thank you for stopping by.
If you're feeling like you want to go to Prayer Meeting
give a listen and most of all
