Grandma's Vintage Chairs

Jeff's grandma had some 60s-era maple dining furniture that we inherited quite awhile ago. It includes a cross-legged table, six chairs, buffet table and hutch. One of the chairs is pictured above. After I bought the vintage coffee table (see my previous post) shown in the back of the pic, I realized the old maple chairs were a perfect fit.

I brought up the arm chair from the basement, cleaned it, and recovered the seat in the striped fabric. All that is left to do is to re-cane the square hole in the seat back.

When the back is caned,  I think it'll look fantastic.

By the way, this stuff is GREAT for cleaning up old wood furniture:

Unfortunately, I can't remember where I bought it!
