I am finally finished refinishing my chairs! Remember these?
When I took off the nasty green vinyl, they had awesome needlepoint underneath, but it was dusty and dirty so I couldn’t use it. Also, I got really cool new fabric to cover them with, so I didn’t want to use the needlepoint!
I put cushioning on top of the needlepoint to preserve it and to make the chairs more comfortable!
These chairs took about 2 coats of the ebony stain and a few coats of the polyurethane sealant.
I had been painting them in the attic, but the sealant seemed to NEVER dry, so I finally took them outside. It worked SO much better. The tarp killed our grass underneath, though… oh well! Worth it.
Meanwhile, I stapled-gunned the fabric onto the seats.
When the chairs were dry, I screwed the seats onto them. Ta-da!! Finished, finally!
How cute is this fabric?
We have already gotten a lot of use out of them. So glad they are finally finished!
