My husband went dumpster diving for a chair and came up with this Poul Volther original.
It was obvious why it had been discarded, but it really just needed a little TLC.
Due to the extent of the break, my man took it apart piece by piece and gave the broken chair leg a good glue and clamp.
The after result is pretty seamless!
The chair was considerably sun bleached and some of its finish was peeling off, so he sanded it and re-finished the teak with a gel stain.
The cord seat was in good, sturdy condition and just needed a good cleaning. After a few hours of time and a couple dollars of product, we found ourselves with a beautifully restored mid-century dining chair. A set of 4 would have been nice, but divers can’t be choosers.
