I removed the fabric from the legs and all the staples. Yes, it was a P.A.I.N! I got poked several times but...oh well, it was worth it, right? I filled up the holes using wood filler and then sanded them and stained them using Dark Walnut gel stain, a couple of coats. After they dried, I applied 2 coats of Polycrilic in gloss.
Am I the only one that leaves an iron on the floor? Please tell me you do too!
I put the slipcover and added the tacks using a hammer. It is not perfect, but at least the fabric stays in place.
I think they look better. And they are super comfy!
