I have been working on this chair today.
I needed to let the paint dry, so the after pics will most likely be posted tomorrow.
I opted to recover the seat with stone/grey cotton canvas.
It was so wrinkled after being in storage that I had to iron it 4 times on the hottest setting (if I had to do it again, I'd soak the fabric, then toss it in the dryer, remove when still damp, then iron it)
This is the first time that I have reupholstered anything. Needless to say I kept my fingers as far as possible from the staple gun.
the finished seat for the chair.
