No special skills are required to repair general damage or wear to these kinds of antique furniture pieces, but the work requires extreme care and patience in tracking down suitable replacement materials.
Synthetic Materials: Aside from the natural fibres detailed in the lines above, there exist a number of different materials for outdoor furniture which are entirely man-made.
Your budget: This is a very important factor. If you choose to just rush into buying furniture that you cannot afford, you will end up with a heavy debt on your back and the furniture pieces will end up being a source of pain instead of a source of joy. It is very important that you be honest with yourself on the amount of money that you can comfortably spend on furniture without getting yourself into debt. This does not mean that you should forego your dream; fir instance if you are looking to buy the ion design furniture, do not switch to a different design, simply take the time to shop around until you find a store that will sell you the furniture at an affordable price. Quality is another point to consider. Just because furniture is priced right doesn't mean it will stand the test of time. Many of the furniture Stores sell furniture at terrific prices, but the quality is not all it should be and once in your home, if you have an active family, you may find the furniture quickly falls apart.

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.
