Pottery Barn is a store that sells home furnishings and decor. They have a wide variety of products, including furniture. One of the items they sell is the Pottery Barn Wooden Swivel Chair.
The beauty of this chair lies in how easy it is to move around since it swivels 360 degrees on its base. Unfortunately, sometimes these chairs can get stuck and not spin anymore! This blog post will teach you how to fix Pottery Barn wooden swivel chair so that it spins again.
Steps on Fixing Pottery Barn Wooden Swivel Chair
Step One: Unscrew the four screws that attach the seat to the chair frame. This will detach them and allow easy access for fixing any issues with how it swivels.
The screw-on top is typically a Phillips head, whereas all other screws are usually flathead style (although this may vary by product). If you don’t have a Phillips’s head, you can use the flathead to turn the screw in an anti-clockwise direction.
Make sure that when you unscrew these screws you put them into your pocket or somewhere safe so they don’t get lost on your floor!
Step Two: Check how well the chair swivels by gently pushing on the edge of it and twisting your body.
If there is any resistance when you push on the chair, place one hand under what’s stuck and use the other to gently pull up on that area with some force until it comes loose. The swivel mechanism should then be totally free once again!
Step Three: Reattach the foot and seat to the base of your Pottery Barn chair.
Make sure that when you attach these screws, they are screwed in tightly by hand with a Phillips screwdriver so there is no chance of them coming loose!
Step Four: Reattach the swivel mechanism to the underside of your chair.
Use a Phillips screwdriver to gently twist the screws in by hand until they are tight.
Step Five: One last step! Reattach the chair’s arm and you’re all set.
Place a Phillips Screwdriver under what is stuck and use your other hand to pull up with some force while turning counterclockwise until it comes loose. Fingers may be helpful in this process as well.
Step Six: After the arm is loose, you will need to unscrew it from the underside of your chair
Use a Phillips screwdriver and hand twist them until they come out. Be careful not to over tighten these screws because if so then your arms won’t swivel anymore.
Step Seven: Once the screws are out, remove the arm from under your chair by unscrewing it with a Phillips screwdriver.
Place one end of the wrench onto what is stuck and then use your other hand to twist for them to come loose.
How to Clean Pottery Barn Wood Furniture
Wood furniture is a work of art. Wood is an organic material and, as such, it will age over time. The most common way to clean wooden furniture varies based on how the wood was finished:
Step 1. Wiping down with a slightly damp cloth
Step 2. Using water mixed with a few drops of dish soap or lemon juice
Step 3. Using oil or wax on the furniture to bring out a natural sheen
Step 4. Washing with soap and water if it is not finished in any way.
DO NOT USE ALCOHOL, ACETONE OR AMMONIA-BASED CLEANERS ON AN UNFINISHED FURNITURE ITEM!
How do you Adjust a Pottery Barn Swivel Desk Chair?
Once you have the screws loosened, unscrew and remove the bolts. This will release some of the tension on your chair so that it is easier to move. Once fully detached from each other, turn one side at a time to loosen up how much they are welded together.
They should come apart without any trouble – don’t force them or use tools! To reattach: put both sides back together and tighten down by screwing bolts into holes until tight enough for the desired level of movement. That’s all there is to it!
How do you Finish Pottery Barn Swivel Chair?
The Pottery Barn Swivel Chair is a beautifully designed chair that has the ability to rotate 360 degrees. If you are looking for how to finish this chair, it is best to first identify how the furniture was finished before using any type of finishing product:
Step 1. Unfinished wood can be stained or painted in your choice of colour.
Step 2. Unfinished wood can be waxed or oiled to bring out a natural sheen.
Step 3. Finished wood should not require any type of finishing product, but if you are looking for how to get rid of the shine from furniture polishes and other protective finishes then use an abrasive cleaner to strip that finish off!
How do you Adjust the Height of a Swivel Chair?
If you are looking for how to adjust the height of a swivel chair, it is best to first identify how the chair mechanism was initially set:
#1. For chairs with wood frames and metal screws in one corner of the seat frame that tighten or loosen by turning them clockwise or counterclockwise, use this method. Loosen each screw just enough so they aren’t touching any other part of the frame before starting.
The more you turn these screws, the higher your back will go until it reaches its full height. Tighten all four corners again once finished and try sitting on your chair! If there is still not enough height then repeat the steps above as needed.
#2. For chairs with wooden legs instead of a metal frame, use this method. Loosen all the screws holding your chair together and remove any old staples or nails that are keeping them in place.
Separate each leg from the seat by gently pulling it apart with one hand while using a pry bar to pull up on the wood until it’s loose enough for you to grip onto. Wiggle out how much of the leg is still attached and then tap it back into position so it’s even with other legs before reattaching at least four corners (or more, if desired ).
#3. If there are no metal screws around your frame but instead just nuts tightening bolts going through holes drilled near each corner: tighten these fasteners in sequence as described above.
#4. For chairs where only two sides have screws: use a pry bar to un-tighten the screws on one side and then reattach them from underneath once loosened.
#5. For chairs where only two sides have nuts tightened bolts going through holes drilled near each corner, tighten these fasteners in sequence as described above.
#6. If your chair has legs with metal plates or glides attached, you may need to unscrew any attaching hardware before pulling it apart. This is usually done by using an Allen wrench for most types of furniture attachments but could also be accomplished by stripping off all of the paint if that’s how they are secured together.
