Updating an Old Chair June 1, 2011

I purchased this chair 5 or 6 years ago, with intentions to stain and reupholstering it soon. Now, I’m finally getting to the project.

Now, I was using an old block sander, when my husband gave me a piece of sponge backed with sandpaper. What a difference it makes when you’re using the right tools!

Once sanded, I was able to put on 3 coats of stain, taking the chair from oak to dark walnut.

Now, I’m think about this fabric, but wonder if I should go with something less traditional. The colors will go well with our family room and most if the house for that matter.

What do you think? Should I head over to Triad and make sure this is the right choice?
