My dad made a lot of these chairs about 50+ years ago and I still have 4 or 5 around the house somewhere. I needed two for the kitchen and needed them to match, so I added to his perfection and changed them a little. This one started out black.
Note to self: Maybe I should look and see what's laying around before I just walk out the door and snap a picture!
Daddy did an awesome job on the seat, there was nothing wrong with it and it looked like the day he made it! I covered it up and painted the rest a soft white. I didn't use the plastic rake. Just another reason I need to pay more attention when I'm taking photo's!
For the slats in the back, I cut strips of burlap and wrapped them around.
I glued the start down and then just wrapped. If I ever want to take it off, I can.
That's it and it was such a change! I'll show you the 2 chairs with the table as soon as I get the table runner and placemats finished.
