Description: The following post will chronicle the adventure of restoring and reupholstering the Davis dining room chair set.
Day 1, Friday, June 23, 2017
Here are 4 of the 6 chairs. I numbered the chairs and seats to make sure the seats end up in the right chairs. Began with number 1.
First, I took apart the loose joints and began to reglue the chair. While waiting for glue to dry, I began taking apart the seat.
Discovered that the last person to work on the seat simply covered it with a new needlepoint fabric.
Once all the material and webbing was gone...
I discovered that the frame needed to be reglued.

Coat of Restor a Finish shines it up.
Only 5 more to go...
Day 5 & 6
Discovered a rookie mistake--glued the top rail on backwards! A few small drill holes, hot water and vinegar solved the problem.
