This is a picture of it in it's current location in my kitchen. I got it for $60 on craigslist. It's painted black, and has the cane back chairs that I love. I need to repair the chairs, recover the seats and repaint the entire set. I purchased the materials to recane the seat backs.
This is a picture of one of the damaged chairs.
This is a close-up of the damage.
I went online for instructions for recaning a chair and was able to remove the old cane and spline. If you need a book about recaning a chair or supplies, see below.
So this is a picture with the cane and spline removed.
I have since started the recaning, it has proved to be a little difficult. When I get the new caning in I will let you see, but for now this is where I am. I must say though, I love the shape of these chairs. They have a beautiful silhouette. I can't wait until they are refinished! I'll tell you more about my home decor plans in a later post. I have to upload some pictures. I hope to have them for you soon.
