Do you have a chair that needs to be repaired or reupholstered?  Did you buy something, or better yet, FIND something that could use some TLC? Don't know where to start?  Need some encouragement and tips? (as well as a kick in the pants?)Cheesy

Then join us for Craftster's Furniture Re-make Craftalong!

We welcome anyone that can provide us with guidance on our journey to finally get grandma's old broken chair gussied up for its debut with the family before the year end! Cheesy

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I have no furniture to redo at this moment, but I may be able to offer some advice here and there for the woodworking part of it.

This is AWESOME. I have one rocker with a gorgeous fan carving on the front and one  Stickley Mission Chair that both need love.

We also have a night stand that needs stripping and refinishing.

Yay!

I know this is sort of random, but one of the skills I have is that I know how to cane chairs...if anyone is interested in that knowledge, I think I still have a board I made up with step-by-step instructions for when I was teaching caning...I am on the look out for a caned chair to refresh my skills!
