Here are the chairs I showed you a while ago:
And here are those tables [have I mentioned how I dislike painting turned legs?]
And here are a couple chairs I don't think I've mentioned [are you now getting the idea how full my garage really is?]
When I got the caned chairs the man giving them to me wanted these gone too and was having a problem with no-shows to his Craigslist ad. So, I took them even though they are totally not my style. I tried cleaning the fabric today to just get them to a consignment shop and sold, but no go, those stains are here to stay.
So, on to plan B, sand the wood, paint them black [it's what I have] and reupholster with a large, bold graphic/floral [inexpensive] fabric which I do not have.
... but wait a second... what about using drop cloth fabric [that I already have]? hmmmmmm.... And I could stencil the fabric w/ a fleur de Lis or another stencil I have? Thoughts?
I was sanding things so took the sander to the nicks/water stains on the Scandinavian/Mid Century chairs just to see how they would look... and then I polished the wood with Howards Bees Wax/Orange oil... WOW! They look Great! So on to plan... C? Who's on first? LOL
New plan is sand, wax, and reupholster in a nice fabric and get them outta' here!
