Hi Everyone!

Scored an amazing pair of rattan chairs this weekend. For the most part the finish is beautiful. There is some varnish loss on the arms that is unsightly in bright light. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience refinishing rattan furniture. I fear that there is probably no fix for just the arms and I will have to remove the varnish from the whole chair and re-finish it with a clear finish. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am in the process of shopping for bark cloth to recover the cushions. Thanks!

Here are two threads that already address this topic. I found them using the handy dandy "search" function. Try it, you'll like it.
