Holidays: Seats for Six

I had a few other pieces to refinish but I thought I would get a jump on refinishing these chairs before Thanksgiving. You know, on the off chance they found a home around somebody’s table for the holiday. I acquired these chairs years ago from someone who had bought them with the sole purpose of refinishing them, but she never got around to them. So, after sitting in my shop waiting for a little TLC, they finally got it!

These chairs were structurally in great condition other than a few of the seats needed the wood replaced. All of the fabric and cushions were completely replaced. One crossbar stretching is missing from one of the chairs but the chair was structurally sound. I thought leaving it the way it was would give the set more character.

Dining Room Chairs Makeover 

  • Removed seats and sanded all wood
  • All stables, cushions, and fabric removed
  • The base of wooden seats replaced where needed
  • Chairs received k walnut stain and wax finish
  • All seats received new cushions and soft turquoise fabric.
