Reupholstering Chairs 101

1) Find a bunch of old chairs - preferably free. The inorganic street collections are perfect for this, it may take a bit of slow drive bys on streets in wealthy Auckland neighborhoods but it will happen.
2) Sand, stain and varnish your chairs.
3) 6 months later, realise that you will never find the perfect ginormous piece of 50's floral upholstery fabric that will cover all six of your chairs.
4) Start buying pieces of mismatched prints.
5) Have a first Sunday off in a month and go crazy with a staple gun.
6) And Bob's ya uncle...for two chairs anyway - I'm off to ebay for more fabric.
