Comments: Old Chairs to Mend

Wow--you stay busy on the weekends! I love the contrasting fabric on the chair arms. Where did you find the big brass tacks?

Those are upholstery nails and I bought them at Joann's. They aren't something I keep around and while I could have reused the covered buttons that were on the chair originally, these solved some problems I would otherwise have had and I liked them.

Y'all are too handy! I got 5 chairs for $2 apiece at the 18th-century inn that was closing (the chairs are probably about 50 years old) shortly after we moved here. They're all kind of wobbly, and I ought to figure out how to glue 'em up, but haven't gotten around to it. So far they haven't collapsed...

That looks so cute!

I love fixing things up.
