My bf found this little project in a thrift store, but having no time to work on it—it was headed to the curb…but went to my car instead, and I’m just getting around to it myself.
It’s from The Bombay Co. Remember them?!?
Looks like it had arms originally, so I need to putty some holes. And it’s WoBBLY in just about EVery direction, so I have a lot of gluing and clamping to do too. You can also see that the front rocker treads were cut down, so I’ll reshape/sand it down a bit more.
1-I taped off this edge before gluing so it wouldn’t drain out all over the place…
2-I pried the two pieces apart just a little extra from the under side, shot the glue in and clamped it up for the night.
3 & 4-You can see the good job the tape did for me~you know Gorilla Glue is m-e-S S-y.
I needed to glue and clamp it up in 5 different directions.
While the chair set up, I moved on to creating an upholstered seat using a shirt-sleeve left over from some other project.
I really just didn’t want the standard solid color or painted~distressed look.
So—an update with a little sass. Forgive me.
The “hillbillies” next door continue their “awful neighbor” antics. Over the weekend they got out a chainsaw and cut down an entire loooong row of mature Arborvitaes and a very large, old lilac bush in FULL glory. Yes~all those beautiful-aromatic blooms —went to the dump.
They have systematically removed EVERYthing now but two trees and the grass. There are NO remaining obstacles left in their way to FULLY ENJOY EVERYONE ELSE’S HARD WORK AND LANDSCAPE.
I’m seriously thinking about planting at least one new bush—what do you think? Yes–No?
