Weekend Project :: Salvage a Chair

My husband picked up these two sling chairs at a local Goodwill because he knows I've been looking for a pair. They looked alright before (click for before photo), but they were a little bit dated and not quite what I wanted. So, we sanded them down and re-stained them a bit darker. The stain I used was called antique walnut and I really love the new color. Then I made new slings from natural canvas using the old slings as patterns. Finding chairs that you love and putting a bit of elbow grease and time into them is always so rewarding. Do you enjoy refinishing your own furniture finds?
