After we received word of the wonderful news following very difficult and tense times, we went to celebrate in Malaga, Spain. And, this is a little story about my now favorite bar in Malaga.
One option to lengthen your oak barrel's aging life is to shave several layers of oak from the inside of the staves and re-char the wood. This may extend the life of the barrel up to 10 years yet the results are not the same as new wood.
Antique furniture is always a priced possession for many. It reminds us of our grandparents and parents who used it at some point of time, making them historically important assets of the family; the China cabinet of granny, the rocking chair of Uncle Harry and the barrel chair on which you and your siblings spent hours playing in childhood. All are the enchantments of the golden times; the times when the things didn't move so fast, and life was less complicated. With the passing time, this furniture has seen generations using it and maybe, sometimes shifted from one place to another. To make them fit in well with your modern day furniture can be a little tricky, but is an achievable task. The barrel chair slipcover is always one of the recommended options for restoring the antique furniture.
One of the easy jobs in refurbishing the old furniture is changing the seat padding of the chairs. They can be easily unscrewed. Then you can cut the cloth according to the size and staple it back. Changing the barrel seat slipcovers is almost the same too. You just need to cut the fabric in the shape of seat and make sure it stick with the seat well. If left loose, barrel seat slipcover can come off making it uncomfortable to sit. It is not so daunting task to restore the antique furniture and making them match with the modern world accessories in your living room.
