This is from my sunroom and my living room...


I found this plant stand at the local Goodwill for $5!


These two chairs each have an ottoman but they are so large that only one ottoman fits in the room. From Craigslist for $150 for the 4 piece set. the lamp in between the chairs came from an antique shop in California. It was $99. The magazine holder was another Goodwill find at $3.


Crummy picture bt this is a daybed. A Craigslist find at $40. All the fabric laying in piles on the daybed will eventually be made into slip covers for all the sunroom rattan.


The large aquarium. It's a 3 piece set that holds some of my Polynesian dolls. Found this at a local thrift store for $199.



The 8 sided aquarium and my first rattan purchase. Unfortunately it leaks so it will hold my redware Hawiian figures. A junk store find I got for $75


My 3rd and medium size aquarium. Another junk store find for $175


I found the chairs on Craigslist for $120 for the pair. The covers are original and were hidden by a red and blue slipcover (you can see those sitting on the daybed photo). The end table is one of a pair of Haywood tables. I picked these up from ebay for $200 for the pair.


Lastly the 3 piece sofa set I found on Craigslist for #200. Horrible slipcovers and they'll be the first to be redone. The second of the Haywood end tables lives here.

7 1/2 hour drive paid off big time!This a close up shot of this incredible solid mahogany student desk-
with rattan trim & dove tail corners on all the drawers - solid mahogany - sides,back and front .
This will be restored and then made available for sale in my rattan thread


This would be considered the Holy Graille or crypto caliber vintage rattan!


In 17 years of buying,selling,collecting and restoring , I have never ever seen or come across an
original recliner and in this great of condition with original cushions!

Thanks Bill,

Here's the sofa after a soapy water scrub, a light sanding and two coats of Minwax Polyshades Honey Pine...Many thanks Polypop for the advice...



The cushions are the original with springs but aren't very comfortable. The covers, though dry cleaned, still look pretty ratty. Not sure which way I'm going to go on them...

Next weekend, the chair...

Inspired by my last visit to Bongofury's Rincon Room, I have on the prowl for rattan.

A few local finds.

A kidney-shaped table that is now the boy's TV/X-Box stand.



A nice little two-tiered corner end table.




And an old Heywood-Wakefield 3-piece sofa with original cushions.








I found a few more items that need a little work before photos.

Rattaning is fun!


DC
