I spent the last two days, before work, between haircuts & after work, restoring one of my antique waiting chairs. After pulling it apart I polished up the chrome legs using a combination of white vinegar/water mix, WD-40, a metal polish and a soft wire brush. Next I took the back panel off, cleaned the leather then replaced it using new upholstery tacks. I also put on four new end caps for the chair legs and thoroughly cleaned the arm rests, they were filthy. But when it comes to the seat cushion I am getting it professionally re-upholstered. I have never done upholstery before and I cannot replicate the amazing welting of the early 60s. The seat cushion will be redone in black to further create the two-tone look which will match my two antique Padair Barber Chairs(all part of a Padair barber shop set) which I've had re-upholstered over the past few years. I'm excited to see it all come together.
