I have had these chairs for years. They were old when I got them! I have painted them several times, but the paint just chips right off. This time, I took all of the right steps to make that paint hold on tight!
Everyone was really helpful with my chaise lounge color, I'm hoping to get your creative input for a wooden crate I bought just because it was cool. It appears to be a very sturdy, old
military shipping piece. Medical stuff. It measures 30" x 17 x 15. I thought maybe a table, but I'm not feeling any good ideas yet. Maybe you all could let me know if you have ever done one like or have seen one finished up. Took pics.
I picked up a 'leather' looking chair someone had put out next to the road. It was beautiful burgundy on rollers. I stopped and loaded it in the back of my truck on my way to work. Didn't
notice the smell till I unloaded it much later at home. I have tried window cleaner, orange oil cleaner, Pine Sol, leather cleaner, dish soap and have stopped short of bleach. NOTHING is working! I have the chair out on my covered porch and when it is really humid or rainy the smell about gags me. REALLY hate to pitch it, there just has to be something else I haven't tried yet. Any suggestions???
When I bought these two couches in 1999, they cost me like $6,000+. The back cushions are not tacked down by anything and they are always getting squished down and well the thing looks
sloppy (wish I'd known that they would do that before I purchased them! Que Sera, Sera!) and now with 3 toddler boys and others the color doesn't even look like what it was. They've been pretty beaten up; however, the frame is strong and they were expensive, what to do or is there anything I can do? They have been cleaned by people using the worst things so they are really in bad shape as far as the leather goes. Is there a way to re-stain them? (Though every scratch in the leather will show up pronounced, wow, I'm talking myself out of this!)
