Restored Antique Rocker
I bought this lovely rocker knowing the amount of work it would entail - worth every moment !
The first step was to clean it with alcohol - didn't know how involved I was going to get.
The entire rocker had to be sanded and stripped with paint stripper on the back spindles.
Used Stripper in a Can, easier to use because it is sprayed on.
After a poor paint removal - I used 100% acetone & paint brush on spindles.
Filling, sanding , sealing.
Sealed chair seat crack after it was reinforced with liquid cement glue.
Sealing the seat, any sanded wooden surface with shellac will prevent bleed through.
I had to use dental floss to remove paint between back spindles and tiny grooves! Painted underneath
Color of paint is Sheepskin
- Paint, stripper, sandpaper, acetone, sealer (A dealer online)
