I knew this wouldn't be much fun, but I had no idea how hard it would be to refinish chairs with lots of grooved spindles. I HAD to do it because this is my idea of a new kitchen set
--lots of metal and very little wood, and this is Brian's idea for the new kitchen set
--no metal and lots of wood.
Rather than spend money on something I didn't want, I decided to refinish the chairs to our kitchen set that came as a package deal with my husband thirty years ago. That would be thirty-plus years of grubby hands wearing off the finish
and seat cushions.
After four horrific days of trying to strip and sand spindled chairs, they are finished.
