A Make Over

Three years ago I went with my good friend Jo to pick up some material to re-upholster her dining room chairs.  This weekend on a visit to Tauranga and we actually did it!  (It has been a three year project plan.....)  
 
Before
We dismantled the chairs and did the bottoms first with lots of goes at trying to get the corners tidy, lots of little tacks and a good blob of fabric glue. 

We also sanded down the highly varnished table and stained it with a Rimu stain
 
After

Very happy with the result :-)
 
I also heard a new name for WIP's this weekend, UFO (unfinished object) and PHD (projects half done) I like these new names.  I do believe that this one had been a UFO.
