I had a goal of sustainably reinvigorating my dining room chairs in June. Green Action #6 - I wanted to dig deeper with living a more sustainable lifestyle. Giving new life to our 22-year-old chairs was quite a process, but we did it. This was real recycling.
We took the chairs apart; removing the seat and back cushions, taking notes through out the process so that we could put everything back together.
Before we worked on the upholstery itself, I cleaned the wood framework of the chairs.
Each oak chair was scrubbed and oiled. When they were done, the frames looked like new.
Tomorrow, we'll take on the upholstery.
