RTA (ready-to-assemble) furniture has been around for about 60 years. Many RV owners buy RTA furniture as it is one of the few options open to them for furniture that will fit through the door.
Home-owners should take care, however, to ensure the cushions they buy to match to their rattan outdoor furniture set do not clash with the rest of the items, at the risk of the effect produced being the opposite of the one they were looking to obtain. Cushions in colours which clash with that of the rattan, for example, might make the set look haphazard and unappealing; similarly, elaborate patterns may not match well with the already intricately woven wickerwork present in most sets, creating a visually unappealing hodgepodge rather than the smooth, inviting, homely seating area the garden-owner might have been hoping for.
If your Rottweiler is more than just your reliable companion, then you will adore having him or her gaze back at you the next time you hang your jacket, look in the mirror, or pull your favorite magazine out of your magazine rack before nestling into your favorite chair.
To restore faded or damaged antique pieces of painted furniture, scrape the paint down to the surface and fill any deep scratches or holes with plastic wood, or Polymer texturing paste. Rub the area with fine glass-paper and repaint, using matching artists' oil colours. To achieve a matt finish, only use undercoat paint; cover it when dry with a good-quality matt varnish. Small areas of old paint texture can be matched by using white undercoat as a base. Apply matching colours with artists' oil paint, which should always be a tone lighter than the original. When the paint dries, it should match the original tones. A varnish may be applied; however, it is best to varnish the entire area rather than the retouched area. This will give an overall even texture to your antique piece. New gloss may be a bit too shiny when dry; if so, rubbing it down gently with steel wool will give it that aged antique look.Furniture restoration can mean different things to various people. Some people want restored furniture to look new, others want furniture to appear well maintained, and to keep evidence of age and usage, which is often referred to instead as "conservation". Purists prefer conservation, and scoff at those who "skin" furniture by removing the finish. Many Who is right? Is conservation better than restoration, or is beauty in the eye of the beholder?
