Wicker chairs outdoor – In ancient Egypt the reed grass and marsh Nile were used to make wicker baskets, chests and other furniture. Since then, modern wicker furniture – especially chairs designed with rounded coil arms – have become a prominent furniture design. Unlike the old wicker, today is more often reserved for relaxing outdoors, which means that wicker chairs outdoor can become extremely worn. To repair reeds missing, broken or deformed, use substitutes reeds, water, some basic tools and paint primer.
Dip substitutes reeds in hot water thirty minutes to one hour. Place them on a flat surface and press out any excess water. Inspect your chair for damage. Identify if it is deformed or has broken reeds. Wrap the reeds deformed with a warm, damp cloth and secure them with a piece of rope or string. Remove the string and cloth after an hour and a half, repositioning and removing the tightest rushes. Secure each with a small nail and let it dry.
Find the beginning of the end of the reed broken in his wicker chairs outdoor. Courtand nail any loose wickerwork on the arm rest of the chassis. Preach a new tip of reed to the armrest and start wrapping the structure in the same way the original pattern. Along the way use small nails in the armrest chassis to protect the reeds.
