I had restored "tons" of gliders before I started taking pictures of them to post.
One reason is that I started long before the digital age, when film was the order of the day and computers were not in every household.
Here is a same of some of the later ones that I have brought back to life, some traditional, some with the whimsy that is me.
|This glider was painted these colors because of their 'spice' names: sage green, paprika red, and saffron yellow.|
|The birds and nest were an idea from my artist neighbor across the street who often wandered over to help.|
|A BUNTING STARBURST PATTERN|
|My wife thought that Sunflowers would look nice, complete with bees.|
|This a SQUARE BASKET WEAVE PATTERN from the ATLANTA STOVE WORKS COMPANY.|
|A ROUND BASKET WEAVE PATTERN from ATLANTA STOVE WORKS COMPANY|
|Although not factory colors, this one did not last long at the antique show|
|The use of bright yellows and whites has been successful for me.|
|This was a custom made for a friend who want both Georgia and Alabama represented.|
|The BUNDLE OF WHEAT PATTERN by BUNTING GLIDER COMPANY is very rare.|
|Teal and white work well together.|
|Red and white is a classic combination.|
|This is an old version of a 'tubular' frame loveseat. The modern ones are not worth restoring.|
|A DIAMOND PATTERN from BUNTING GLIDER COMPANY.|
|Bright green and white catches the eye.|
|An example of a sleeper-glider with matching side chair.|
|A red and white love seat for a special couple to enjoy.|
|The best dog a man ever had sitting on a sleeper-glider with original horse hair stuffed cushions.|
|Primed and ready for the finishing colors.|
