There are many ways to throw new life in these antique pieces of barrel chair slipcovers. The person may be surprised to know the number of ways by which this old furniture can be professionally restored. If the bones of furniture do not fit in well, they can be restyled to gibe with your current home decor. Padding is always a welcomed option to soften the lines of a chair or a recliner. The pleated chair skirts with a tailored seat back and a similar table cloth are also appreciable options to refurbish the old barrel chair slipcovers.
One option to lengthen your oak barrel's aging life is to shave several layers of oak from the inside of the staves and re-char the wood. This may extend the life of the barrel up to 10 years yet the results are not the same as new wood.
The Caned Barrel Chair takes traditional McGuire materials and updates them with the contemporary lines of hand-bent rattan. While it was designed for comfort - the proportion coupled with the round curve of the back and arms provide a welcoming shape - the rattan and double caning are known for durability.
The chairs that are created and then sold at their many gift shops are definitely products that are made with high quality. They are hand crafted and the joints are reinforced by using not one but two different methods to hold them together. This is made possible through both glue and nails as well. You also are given two different options for purchase if you go through their website. You can assemble them yourself for cheaper costs or get them to you fully assembled but it will cost a bit more due to size.
