This chair started out like the others as a forgotten derelict hanging from a barn rafter. It was surprisingly sturdy and required only cleaning and refinishing. The wood it is made of is Maple. I went to the local Farm Supply and had a red paint mixed that would not clash with the tape I planned to use for the seat and would also compliment the oriental carpet in the room where it will live. I really liked the first paint color which was an off the shelf Regal Red. However, “she who must be obeyed” said it was too shiny. So I returned to my supply store and this red was the result. I must admit it looks better without so much shine.
The weave on the seat is a multi-diamond pattern and I thing suits the room well. The seat colors are beige and red. The red has black, olive and beige stripes in it. I am happy with the result and hope you like it too. I promise to stop posting chairs, but I do have three porch rockers left to do yet.
