I purchased these chairs from a restaurant that went out of business for a great deal. I didn't realize what bad shape they were in until I started working on them. I've only done two so far but will admit that I've spent over twenty hours on these chairs.
My transformation began with stabilizing the chairs and glueing. I then stripped the fabric and stripped the hundreds of layers of paint (took most of my time). Lastly, I was able to reupholster, my favorite part!
