Chair Makeover

I bought this chair at a barn sale for $3.00

The wood looked worn and the fabric was an outdated vinyl.  I decided to change it to make it look new again.  I started by reupholstering the seat and back. 

It looked better already!  But it needed something more.  So I went and bought some Cabot interior wood stain in brown mahogany and updated the wood.  First, I sanded it just a bit with fine sand paper. 

Then, I just reattached the seat and back.  It took only two days and it looks so much better in my dining room!
