Chairs, Chairs, Chairs

Red, yellow, black or white, with a little bit of moonlight...anybody recognise that song?  It was a one-hit wonder from about 1978 or 1979, by a band whose name has gone, long gone, from the pit that is my memory...

Anyway, I am in WA, Gentle Readers, that's Western Australia, visiting my lovely Ma and Hank for the first time since June, and covering their bargain buy, which I may have posted pics of earlier.  If not, here goes.  (Look away now if ugly upholstery frightens you...)

Mum attacked the chairs with hot water and sugar soap and they were... filthy:

But after a good scrub, a coat of varnish or two, and some new upholstery, they look pretty good, imho.

My Ma professes herself to be ... quite pleased.

Me too!



  1. You are so talented!

  2. Well done Ms Golightly - that's a wonderful transformation! (Was that previous covering tapestry? it kind of looks like it in the pics...)


Hello, it's nice to see you! Thanks for dropping in to say "Hi"!
