Introduction: Renewing the Old Chair
i found this chair at my neighbors backyard and they were about to throw it out so i jumped at the opportunity and started working
Step 1: Sanding... (a Lot)
i used my orbital sander to do most of the sanding but for the rounded parts i used some 100 grit sand paper just to get all the old dirty layer of the wood of so it would take the stain better
Step 2: Clean the Wood
the seat was made of straw so all the holes were full of it so i used my drill with a 5.5 mm drill bit to clean all the holes also i removed quite a bit of nails just because i don't want to get stabbed while sitting but im not gonna judge you
Step 3: Stain and Lacquer
i used a dark stain to get the chair looking like its not completely dead and it looks good with the white paracord after the stain dride i applied a layer of lacquer so it won't be ruined by rain and sun light
Step 4: And Now the Sit
i used white paracord because it wont get bleached by the sun (cuz its white and stuff)
my advice is to cut the rope to sections so it's easy to thread the rope throw the holes
and all thats left is to thread till you drop dead
dont forget to cut the excess and cauterize the wound
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
