San Francisco, C...
These two chairs were rescued from an impromptu home bonfire by my Dad during his college days and sat in our attic for about 35 years.
Last year, I sneaked them into the back of my car and took them home, where I stripped away the old finish with a chemical stripper, re-varnished and sealed the wood, and fitted them out with new foam seats and lined cotton covers, as a gift for my Dad’s birthday.
Just chemical stripper, wood filler, varnish, clear sealant, cotton fabrics, and a big role of foam stuffing.
