Vintage Chairs

 problem: vintage chairs need some love
solution: refinish wood, metal legs and reupholster
 these babies were tricky. the old finish didn't want to let go, and the new finish didn't want to adhere. i used a few tricks and got everything to come together. don't they look fresh?
 the old upholstery was bad all the way through, so i put in new foam, batting and then fabric. i love the fabric allison chose.

a few around the table
we debated refinishing the metal on the legs...i'm SO glad i did.
allison and i both have a thing for mid-century, modern design...i kind of wish i had most of what is in her house.
loved working with you, allison!
