Re: How to restore old dining table and wicker chairs
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Aman0039. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
I'd hazard a guess that our members might need some additional images to further illustrate the issue you are needing to correct. Personally I am having trouble seeing the small crack, staining and where the paint has chipped off.
You would be correct that any sanding to a texture will diminish it and should only be done if it is a necessity.
We look forward to seeing some additional images and providing some solutions to the issues described.
