Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
continuing with last week's post:
this is my old bamboo garden chair, folded
I've noticed some of the wood isn't actually bamboo, but replacement parts
the bindings are bamboo, I think, maybe some form of wicker?
not in the best condition anymore and it was already old when I found it during kerbside collection week about 10 years ago
a good brushing to remove dust and spiderwebs
and loose bits of timber/bamboo
I'm using this furniture polish and restorer. I planned on decking oil, but this was already here in my cupboard and Bunnings is several suburbs away
a scrappy old paintbrush, which was once a make-up brush that I cleaned dust off the keyboard with
I laid the chair sideways to do the bottoms of the legs first
here you can see the difference between the oiled right hand legs and the unoiled left hand legs
some of the seat binding has come loose, I'll stick that down with a bit of super glue later
the difference here is really noticeable, I wish now I'd brought the chair in for oiling a couple of years ago
here it is finished, drying and waiting for a new (old) home on the front porch, where I had it when I first moved in here
more next week....
