I'm still moving slow these days due to the tendinitis in my elbow. But here is the progress on the chair make over.
I decided to do as little as possible to tidy the chairs. I thought about how my huge sons still like to wipe their hands anywhere convenient. And how they blast monster farts into whatever they are sitting on. So here was a prudent compromise.
I am carefully removing the original fabric from the seat tops. I am washing them twice in the washing machine with tide. They are cleaning up pretty good. I am replacing the chair web with jute web I purchased from Joann fabrics for .79 cents a yard.
Here is my progress so far.
