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.
