I haven't done a something old is new again post for a long time. Our neighbors gave us first chance on this free willow furniture. It is pretty banged up. The set includes a rocking chair, a huge bench, and two chairs. We brought it home somewhat skeptical about if it was worth the effort. We decided that somebody put a lot of work into making them and they were actually worth quite a bit. Nothing is ever free. We decided to power wash them and then I sanded the rocking chair and bench with steel wool. When I'm finished, we will replace the broken pieces and give them a coat or two of linseed oil.
We don't know anything about making willow furniture, but one is never too old to learn. It should make for an interesting summer project.
We have enjoyed some beautiful days. It isn't super warm, but the snow is melting. I saw our resident fox yesterday. I was quite happy, as I hadn't seen any tracks all winter. Do you have any big summer projects? Have you ever redone any willow furniture? Tips an hints are appreciated.
