Outdoor rockers come in many different types such as wood, wicker and even swivel rockers; that is why it is important that you take time to do your homework and learn all your options before choosing the chairs for your porch. Even children can have their own rocking chairs that will make them feel special when spending time with the family.
Generally chair rail is basically molding that has plain rounded edges, although more complex routed moldings perform just as adequately. Just as the sophisticated curves and fancy routed molding can enhance your chair rail, so can embossed moldings or pressed wood or resin moldings. Any of these versions of molding provides an aspect of depth to what is otherwise a fairly plain horizontal line around the middle of a room.
When you want to spend time relaxing with your family and friends, your front porch is the perfect place to do that. If you have the right front porch furniture, especially porch rocking chairs, then everyone will enjoy spending time together on the porch just relaxing or even playing games.
Chair covers for your dining room chairs are an excellent idea, especially if you have young children. With children, accidents do happen, and food can easily get spilled, especially if the food is relatively liquid or has a higher oil content. Some children may even be inclined to wipe their greasy fingers on the chairs after they have eaten, even if they are given a napkin to use! Spills, stains and oily marks can be quite difficult to remove from your chairs, unless you have chair covers. Removable covers will allow you to take off the cover if it gets messy, and then wash it properly, away from the chair. If you have young children, investing in inexpensive, machine washable covers could be a brilliant idea for you.
I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
