It's Too Hot For Work Outside...

so I am tackling a few inside projects that have been waiting for winter.  I think the triple digit heat qualifies for indoor projects.
What is it, you may ask. A very unusual chair that I've had for years.  It was stored, moved, used, and stored not with kindness.  So Gorilla Glue, a rubber hammer and a lot of elbow grease was used.
I had to steal the pillows from the guys. Well, I actually didn't steal the pillows but did some trading. No recovering needed.  Lemon oil and just general clean up and this will go to the shop.

If I can part with it.  I've been giving it a test run for sturdiness and comfort.  It passed. I'm still loving it as much as I did years ago when I purchased it without cushions. You just don't see many chairs like this.

Gail,

That is a really nice looking chair. I love the old furniture that is made with REAL wood.
Are you sure you want to bring this chair to the shop?
Stay cool today, catch you later.

I don't know how in the world you could part with that chair. It's so unique! I say keep it as a nesting spot for yourself.

We finally got a break in our weather and have had some work done on our front porch. I can't wait until I can use it again (tomorrow).

That chair is fabulous. So unique and it has such strong presence.
Our heat took a brief vacay and we had rainy weather for a week. Cooled off nicely at night.....but the devil called and said hell's on the way back up top, so there ya go.

I agree, real wood, character and just solid goodness. Can't find stuff like that any more.

What a very lovely chair and looks great with the added cushions. Aah, they do not make furniture like this anymore and you brought it back to life. NICE :)
