Thanks Murph and Duane

Murph your set still is the best one on this thread. I love the pull out bed and the finish looks so pretty.

Duane...you are more than welcome to come anytime you are around these parts. I wish the coffee table was a bit smaller but it will do for now.

Finally...very surprised to find this in the town I live in!






Quite an epic saga involved in procuring this treasure in the end...and now a lot of work ahead of me. I have found some amazing pieces of furniture lately, but old stuff in this town is pretty much always badly damaged from neglect...







I'm thinking of pilfering some of the trim from the back side to refinish the edge of the bar top:




First step: pulling this godawful check fabric off the stools:



What was underneath - worst tropical print fabric EVER!



I will probably use the green tapa barkcloth on the bar in the above pics to recover these.

Anybody got any experience of repairing these bars or replacing the trim and binding on rattan furniture? I see 1961surf had a bar restoration thread but it never progressed much beyond the sanding/refinishing stage.

I am thinking I may have to find a sacrificial specimen to cannibalise for materials. You need to soak or steam the stuff before wrapping it, correct?

Any advice or tips appreciated!

Although the bar in the thread you posted is nice, I really like the one you bought today.

I could take pictures and post them but that is for you and your room mate to do SandraDee. Congratulations!

The people who sold this were extremely nice and helpful.

Gotta love this style!

Later,

PTD

Picked this vintage horizontal stacked rattan bar up last weekend .Had to drive a long way to pick it up ,however
I think it was worth the trip! Rare twist bar stools that rotate -with original cushions .Needs some minor finish
work on the rattan facia ,so I will probably hand sand all the original varnish off by hand , then shot two fresh
coats of Zspar yacht varnish ..... wet sanding in between coats for an ultra finish.

These are old pictures of my bar and shelves I purchased for total of $120 about twenty years ago.

The booze is now stored in that reproduction cabinet behind the bar.


I keep my glassware on these two shelves.


I love all the banded sets that have been posted!!!
