Wood veneers can be difficult to match. It is possible to buy new veneer strips, but they are generally thinner than the old hand-sawn veneers and do not always match in colour. It often pays to go to an auction to look for a broken oddment of furniture that has suitable veneers. To remove a veneer from its backing, first clean off any old polish with white spirit and carefully clean the varnish or wax. Place a damp cloth over the cleaned strip and press with a fairly hot iron. Keep the cloth damp. This melts the Scotch glue holding down the veneer, which can then be peeled off. The same technique is used to raise small areas on the antique piece, but use a soldering iron instead of an iron. Wipe all traces of glue while it is still warm. Dampen the veneer and flatten it between two pieces of wood for about 24 hours before use. Do not let it dry completely, for veneers must be re-laid while still damp and pliable. The replacement veneer should be slightly thicker than the existing one, to allow for sanding. Stick the new strip down with Scotch glue and apply a weight or clamp until the glue has completely set. Wax and polish to match the existing finish.
Specifically, wicker outdoor furniture should be weather resistant and should be able to endure harsh rays of the sun in the summer. This is especially true since it spends so much time sitting outdoors; even if the weather is dry it can create problems for wicker furniture. If you plan to use your wicker outdoors, remember to bring it in during winter months, and keep it clean during the summer.
Ways to achieve this include using sliding doors leading from a dining room to the outside area, complementing colour schemes, the addition of an awning or canopy to the patio, or the combination of two or more of these. The ultimate goal, however, is basically the same: to ensure the act of going from the indoor part of the home to the outside appears seamless, and that both areas are visually connected, creating a whole.
