Refurbishing Decades Old Chiavari Chairs

These days it is the popular opinion to throw out the old and buy the new.  But a lot of people are buying cheap products and therefore have to repurchase them every few years due to low quality manufacturing.  On the other hand, products that are made with high quality materials and precise craftsmanship can last for decades.

Before: the chairs looked old, dirty and pretty banged up.

Chiavari chairs, if properly maintained and made with quality wood, like those from Vision Furniture, can last for decades! Actually… even if the chairs aren’t that well maintained, the wood can still be refurbished to look just like new.

After: all it took was a little time, sandpaper and paint to restore the chairs.

Recently, we had a local customer come to us with dozens of old wooden Chiavari chairs that had been stored in a dirty barn for over a decade. The chairs were dusty, scratched, and cover in bird poop! After a little TLC from the Vision Furniture staff, the chairs are now clean, smooth and ready to use! Even after years of abuse the wood maintained a sturdy chair structure and just needed cosmetic refurbishments.

This is a testament for using wood over any other material offered in the Chiavari Chairs marketplace. The reason that wood is so much better than resin or metal is because all it takes to clean up a piece of wooden furniture is some sandpaper and paint. You just can’t do that with resin or metal chairs. Check out the before and after pictures to see how a little elbow grease can bring life back to old wood.

 

Moral of the story: buy quality products that can be easily maintained over the years. Don’t waste your time or money on flimsy merchandise that has to be replaces year after year.
