Wicker Rocker Needs New Back

This rocker needs new spokes and the top section is a mess. Someone tried to repair by splicing pieces of reed where the spokes were missing, didn't work long. The rest of the rocker is in very good condition.

Wicker Rocker With Repaired Back

Here is the rocker with the new back in place. As you can see, we replaced all of the back including the spokes running from the seat back up to the top. This was done with wire core fibre and regular fibre blending the new into the old. Just needs painting!

Customer Response fo Chair Below

Here is the e-mail we received from our customer for the chair right below;

You did a beautiful job on my great grandparents'
wicker chair. Thank you so much for taking the time
to blend together the colors so well. I know the
chair and it is hard to tell where the old ends and
the new begins. I was worried about it coming out
looking too new - but it is perfect. It is my old
chair - only better! I was so afraid I would have to
throw it out - it was slowly falling apart...Now I
know we can love and cherish it for years to come.

Thanks too for the great job on the cane seat. I love
it when old furniture gets a new lease on life!

If I find or buy any furniture in need of help I will
be sure to call on you again.

Thanks so much,

Mia Canestrari
