Add Chair Leg Protectors to Wicker Dining Furniture

Protecting wicker dining furniture by adding chair leg protectors will help them resist cracking, dampness, frame damage, and unraveling of the wicker covering. The correct style of chair leg protector will also guard all floor types against damage from moving the chairs. Follow these guidelines to apply the best chair leg protectors to your wicker furniture.

Step 1 - Measure the Circumference of Your Wicker Dining Chair Legs

Find out how large your chair legs are by measuring them with a cloth tape measure around the bottom of each leg and up 2 inches from the bottom. If the legs taper toward the bottom, buy a size closest to the smaller of the two measurements. If the legs flare at the base, use the larger measurement.

Step 2 - Select the Style of Chair Leg Protectors You Wish to Use

Chair leg protectors come in various materials, including rubber and hard plastic, with felt-covered tips and without. For wicker chairs that will sit indoors on carpet, choose a slip-on rubber sleeve chair protector with a caster attachment. If you use your chairs on hardwood floors, or on the tile, concrete or stone of a patio, choose an all-rubber chair leg protector with a thick base.

While most chair leg protectors simply slip on to the chair feet, adding a few drops of all-purpose glue to the leg will help the chair leg protectors stay on as the chair is moved. Place the chair leg protectors on each leg of the chair and test that each is secure. Permit the all-purpose glue holding the protectors on to dry for 1 to 2 hours, then test each chair to see that the chair leg protectors are securely attached.

The legs of wicker dining chairs can be damaged by people pulling and pushing on the chair legs with their feet, barefoot, or in shoes. This can cause splitting and unraveling of the wicker reeds. Protect the lower legs of each wicker dining chair by coating them in wound strips of thin leather, as the highest-quality wicker chairs are finished. You can do the leg wrapping either before or after adding the chair leg protectors to the bottom of each chair leg.

Obtain thinly-cut leather strips from the craft store or building supply center. Make sure to get 2 yards per leg of each chair. Clean and brush the legs thoroughly so the leather stripping will adhere well. Coat the length of each leg and around its circumference with all-purpose glue where you will apply the stripping. Start winding the leather strips at the highest point on each chair leg where you want this protective coating. Wind them downward at a 10-degree angle so they touch each other but do not overlap as they descend. Ensure the leather strips go down into the chair leg protector cap.

Do you have a chair in your home that's off limits to everyone else?

One for my husband , one for me, and the dog. We all know our own territory (:>

How many friends do you have that are so full of BS you need to stand on a chair when they visit?

I have only one friend like that ... but I also work with someone who is like that. I guess it takes all kinds. :)

how bad is it for a 14 yr old girl to do a sexy chair dance in front of her 15yr olf bf?

My natural inclination is to suggest that you make her stop. But, she already is going down that road so the best thing you can do is guide her away from making any big mistakes. Kids that age look for ways to express their sexual feelings. Dancing is not the worse outlet for it. As long as they are not swinging around a pole. May-be talk to her about how there is a line between sexy/suggestive/flirty and out right proposition. Children do not often understand the difference. 15 year old boys especially do not understand the difference. Talk to her about how that sometimes for 15 year old boys anything sexual can be interpreted as an invitation so she needs to be careful not to bite off more then she is ready to. Talk about the downfall of doing things with someone and they breaking their trust. (Her sexy dance being posted on the school website.) Society here is rough and she will take the brunt of it if it gets out. Not fair but how it is. Maybe also talk to her about privacy as well. Some things are not suppose to be a group activity. Now if you are really brave... Talk to the boyfriend about how their relationship is a gift and what they do together should not be shared with his boys. Talk about trust and honor. Talk to him about not pressuring her to do things she is not ready to do and maybe he is not ready too as well. All very complex. Good luck
