Although I love, love, loved the white chairs with our "haunted" dining table, they really were too large for our small dining area in the kitchen. They just simply took up too much space. So, I've had my eye out looking for some mahogany chairs to go with our beautiful mahogany table.

So I brought them home, and it turns out there was nothing wrong with the finish. I thought for sure I'd have to refinish them, but I lucked out. The wood just needed to be cleaned with a little Murphy's Oil Soap, and then I freshened the finish with a little bit of polish.

|Jasper decided to help cut the foam.|
|All cleaned up with the new upholstery.|
|Nice thick, comfy cushions.|
|After: Looking like new around the table.|
Okay... now for the kicker... This week, I found five more of these chairs!! When all the leaves are in our table, it will seat eight. So I now have enough matching chairs, plus one!! They are not in as good of shape as these four, but I snatched them up for $10 a piece, $50 total!! They need a little work...some of the joints need to be reglued, and of course, the cushions need to be replaced and re-upholstered. But when they are done, we'll have a complete set.
