I bought 4 of these mid-century dining chairs from TradeMe (the NZ version of Craig's List) thinking that they would scrub up nicely. I've never done any reupholstering before but I figured 'how hard could it be?'. Um, hard! It took me three days to disassemble, sand, recover, oil, and reassemble them. But I did it! I learnt heaps along the way, but I don't think I'll be jumping into a new project right away!
