    well Chris, have to say, I did like the first picture, but you did a great job on re upholstering it.
    I have some dining room chairs I am going to tackle in the spring.
    April, I love your chair. I think it would look fantastic with the little skirt around the edge of the seat.
    Oh, how I wish I had something that belonged to my grandma or my dad.
    I do have my maternal gma's sewing machine. It weighs an absolute ton!
    What colors are you thinking of April?
    (I sure do love your cutie patootie always helping you post, too :wink: )

    I am thinking to do it as close to the original color as possible which is like a carmelly brown. I would enjoy have the sewing machine!
    Thank you...I am thinking of putting a new picture of the cutie in to help me post...I just have to find a cute one :-)
    Hugs
