This outdoor steel rocking chair was marked $3 on Friday, and with 25% off on Saturday, this was a true bargain and I saved 75 cents by waiting!
I've never had one of these, but I'm pretty experienced removing old paint from metal and prepping it for new paint. I didn't get any shots before I started stripping it, but it was painted green and like a lot of these old chairs it had several coats of old paint underneath.
I found a few rust holes in the legs and one in the arm, so those need fixing. This was the worst damage.
Maybe that's why it was priced so cheap.
I'll post more about this chair as the work progresses. (Link to Part 2)
So after I paid for the chair, I went back into the garage to look over the Kroehler sofa some more. I had been thinking if I got it I could simply replace the seat cushion foam - but after looking it over more closely, the cushion fabric didn't have zippers installed, so the only way to get the old lumpy cushion pieces out would have been to cut the fabric or try to get zippers installed. Now I really doubt that 60-year-old fabric would be workable for installing zippers. So, I decided to forget the sofa. Sorry Sara, I can't bring everything home. I do hope someone got it.
However, I did bring this Lane coffee table home for just $37.50!
That's right, this table was $50 on Friday and no one bought it!
It has some wear but the scratches all look pretty light so I'm hoping I can get this looking good without a ton of effort.
Overall, a good weekend, but now I have more projects to work on.
