1950’s Bamboo Set

Mel and I recently came across this really cool set on Craigslist and thought if we refinished it, the set would be one to go crazy over.

Mel and I purchased the chair on the left about 2-3 weeks ago with the intention of reselling it in our shop. That all changed when we discovered a matching chair, couch and ottoman on Craigslist.

The gentleman we purchased the set from said he had it for over 20 years.  Before that, his mother bought the set new. What a family heirloom!

This set has these cool caps on the armrests that offer a cool bit of styling to the set.

The corners of each piece have reinforced strapping.

IMG_3718The next thing to do is to start to look for new fabric to bring these back to life.  They need new strapping underneath, and I need to refinish the frames.  We look forward to their completion.

  1. Gorgeous! So do you do the usual “refinish” drill on bamboo? Sand, stain, etc.,??? Do tell cause I’ve got a piece or two looming & staring over my shoulder
