So what is one to do with a huge window area? We have devised a design that will work well with windows that require these extra long wrought iron curtain rods without having them look undesirable. With this design idea you can decorate a window treatment as wide as you need.
Even more than with synthetic rattan, the question of whether or not rattan furniture is eco-friendly seems to arise about items made from the actual material extracted from palm trees. Any natural material will always bring about doubts as to whether or not using it may be harming the environment, and in the case of rattan, this is no different.
Wood veneers can be difficult to match. It is possible to buy new veneer strips, but they are generally thinner than the old hand-sawn veneers and do not always match in colour. It often pays to go to an auction to look for a broken oddment of furniture that has suitable veneers. To remove a veneer from its backing, first clean off any old polish with white spirit and carefully clean the varnish or wax. Place a damp cloth over the cleaned strip and press with a fairly hot iron. Keep the cloth damp. This melts the Scotch glue holding down the veneer, which can then be peeled off. The same technique is used to raise small areas on the antique piece, but use a soldering iron instead of an iron. Wipe all traces of glue while it is still warm. Dampen the veneer and flatten it between two pieces of wood for about 24 hours before use. Do not let it dry completely, for veneers must be re-laid while still damp and pliable. The replacement veneer should be slightly thicker than the existing one, to allow for sanding. Stick the new strip down with Scotch glue and apply a weight or clamp until the glue has completely set. Wax and polish to match the existing finish.
In addition to this, the blending of styles within a back yard or patio is no longer frowned upon, and garden-owners are encouraged to let their imaginations run rampant. Mixing rattan garden furniture with iron lighting fixtures and wooden floors can, if done correctly, give a garden a highly unique and appealing look, so home-owners should not be afraid to experiment.
