Chair Refinishing


I was asked to refinish and re-upholster this chair. It also needed repair.

It originally had a bunch of dings and bangs along with a split in the frame.

The upholstery had a lot of old glue jobs.

So I removed all of the upholstery and set up to repair the split with wood filler mixed with glue and stain.

Once it set and dried, I took the chair apart to sand all of the curves well.

After sanding out all of the old finish and dings, I stained and clear coated the chair frame.

I used pvc clothesline for the trim instead of welting.

And attached with staples and small nails.

The chair became new again.
