Vintage Chair Restoration.

I bought a more than 50 year old South African chair from a lady last year. The lady inherited it from her in laws but she hated it and wanted to sell them. So with the blessings from her mother in law, she sold them in loose pieces to make way for new dining table chairs. I bought one of them from her and recently the leather cords on the old chair had started to give way. I suppose it is fair after all they are that old. I ordered new leather cords from ebay two weeks ago. Being the overzealous me, as soon as I saw the package, I set out to the hardware store to buy some supplies to get started. Restoring the chair was lots of fun.

Hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I did restoring it.
