Douglas and Davy – Dining Chair Pair

Douglas and Davy – that’s what I named this set of dining chairs. We found them at Goodwill a few weeks ago covered with stinky, tacky brown vinyl and bleached maple wood. In our first attempt at professional reupholstery (by “professional” I mean self-educated and with all the proper tools this time), we completely restored these chairs. Stripped off all of the old upholstery and padding, removed all the staples and tacks, refinished the wood legs with walnut stain, and reupholstered them with fresh padding and new upholstery. We’re quite pleased with how they turned out.

    I couldn’t let this post go by without commenting…nice work! Those chairs look incredible! I am sure that was quite the labor of love. Can’t wait to see where you find places for all these items in your new home. Have a great Monday!
