Before you buy any garden furniture it is strongly recommended that you do some research. Doing so will greatly increase your chances of buying garden furniture that is right for you and will last you a long time. Following are some important tips you need to consider before you buy.
Today the value of antiques will depend on whether pure gold leaf was used or wax gild, as was common practise to reduce the cost of making a fine piece of furniture. The other popular alternative, gold paint, although simple to apply, produces a rather garish finish and lacks depth. Wax gilts, available at most art shops these days, come in many tones of gold. They are ideal for touching-up damaged of gold leaf and for applying a broken gilt surface over white or coloured paint. They are simple to apply, ensuring that even most unskilful restorer can restore their prize antique piece. Wax guilt can easily be removed with turpentine substitute, so a good idea is to protect it with a covering of clear alcohol-based varnish. Another alternative is liquid leaf, again easy to apply. It can be brushed on, or drawn on with a pen. It is brighter than gold leaf and does not have the same 'antique' finish as wax guilt, hence larger areas may not have the desired effect especially when restoring your antique piece.
Basically you will be constructing a somewhat smaller table and attaching the framed print on top. One person I know tried a short cut to completion by merely attaching legs to a picture. Need I tell you that it did not look like furniture and the glass brokenot from the weight of a stack of magazines and books, but the mere act of setting it down carelessly. The glass is 3/16 to inch in thickness and is not tempered. You do not want flexure of the glass so a stable base is required. Consider this if you chose a picture mounted on foam core with no backing.
When this mattress first arrived on my doorstep (I ordered it online) I immediately noticed it would be a bit difficult getting it up my stairs. It must be at least 100 pounds because I needed help from 20 other people just to get it into my room.
