So, the chair looked okay from a distance. But...
|Up close it was a little scuzzy|
|And the madhead who sold it to me had 'fixed' the wobbly leg by hammering in some oversized screws|
|B&S DIY: all manner of stuff packed into a very small shop. Strangely brilliant.|
That was a mistake. That dent right there? That's a too-long-screw poking through from the other side.
TLOML went back for some wider screws. He was there anyway for a sink strainer, a fuse, and some gardening gloves. Fox Corner is not exactly 'turnkey'.
The chair is still a bit wobbly. It needs another coat too. But we're so busy doing actual home improvements I suspect we might never get around to it.
So £90 (if you count the chair, the materials, and the cab to get it home), and several hours later, I have just saddled us with a wobbly, under-painted chair.
