Our dining room table was my grandparents from when they lived on Signal Mountain, and maybe even before that. After they moved to the lake it went into storage until Mark and I moved into the condo in Wilmington and were in need of a table.
So this table has been around a while. And it was showing its age by the time we moved into the new house. As a housewarming gift, Susan and Dad offered to have the chairs recovered. So while they were visiting in October, we selected a coral print fabric for the chairs and for the two wicker chairs that we use if we have more than four for dinner.
After a few mishaps with the upholsterer, all that was left was to sand and repaint the frames, which Mark did in the garage with the help of a refrigerator box we took from one of the trash piles from a house in the neighborhood. And voila! They are gorgeous.
