Dining Chair Reuphostery // Before and After

My husband grew up on a Century Farm, his family having lived there since the 1880s.  Besides having huge old outbuildings sturdily built by his Swedish homesteading ancestors, his home is rich in family heirlooms.  These chairs were purchased by his grandfather sometime in the 1920s or 1930s.  They were in rather sad shape when they showed up in the back of the pickup - having been "basement" chairs for the past 35 or so years.
Turns out, all they needed was a fresh batch of upholstery and padding and a generous coat of Old English.  I cannot tell you how much I adore Old English.  It covers scratches, water stains, and various other ailments of old wood.  Here is the before:
