As much as I agree the the missing hammer is a disappointment it is a nice gift idea. I have the flashlight in a larger size that I love. It is the brightest flashlight I've ever had and I can leave it out because its just so darn pretty.

I've restored some eames shell fiberglass chairs with pretty good results so I imagine that could work for you. I used the directions from chairfag http://chairfag.com/?p=3
Hopefully this helps.

I had a similar problem with a bed frame from West Elm. I removed the plastic protective caps from the corners of the mattress and with a little finesse and putting the mattress straight in instead of one end at a time I was able to make it work.

I have the CB2 option in dark wood and metal base so I cant speak to the quality of the white. I can however say that I think this option is much sturdier then what I have seen in Ikea. I couldn't be happier with it.

LuaBear you can usually find plasti-dip in the paint section of most home improvement stores. I know its right next to the spray paint at my local lowes and home depot.

cbauch: I see them in antique stores especially some of the larger antique malls that carry a variety of things. I have also seen them in the tools section on cragislist.

I have several from my grandfather and great grandfather and have them displayed in my living room. I still use two of them when I build my own canvases. I think I'll have to use this as a reference when people ask what they are. Thanks!

I'm so sad to see this. Williamsburg paint is the most amazing oil paint you could ever ask for and I've always loved the story of the company and knowing where and how the products I use as an artist come from.
