So, recently, I threw out a couple of 30 year old, beat-to-crap sofas - hey, decades of kids leaping on a sofa will do that.  They were in my upstairs hall, which is actually about 6 feet wide, with wider spaces at each end.  So I decided to replace them with a pair of chairs and a table at each end of the hall.  I bought all of the chairs secondhand, so I had two pairs.  They were kinda butt ugly and a little beat up, but still very solid.  So I covered the scratches with a liberal application of Old English Furniture Polish (it contains stain), and I got the first pair reupholstered - it was the uglier pair.

After polishing up, but before repadding and recovering the seat:

The finished product:

And these are the chairs that have yet to be reupholstered.  They are much more ornate; this is how they look in their permanent position.  The seats don't exactly match, but they're not as bad as the others.  Can you believe I paid only $100 for the pair?

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Don't tell me you do upholstery too. Is there anything you don't do? They look wonderful. I really like ornate chairs.
