Hello AT,

I purchased this set from Craigslist at a great deal of $30, and primarily for the chairs since they've got the danish modern look that I love.

I'm looking for ideas or suggestions on how to spruce them up.

The chairs are stamped 1959. The backs are solid wood and in pretty good condition.

They don't have much in terms of dings but have more of a worn look...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

The legs are a bronze colored metal and the seat is covered in green vinyl.

The vinyl is stapled into the bottom of the seat which is made of wood, so the chairs should be pretty easy to reupholster.

I'm not of a fan of the green and am looking for advice on reupholstering the seats.

Should I go with a solid color or a patterned fabric? I'm not sure how the patterned fabric would look with this danish modern style.

What about the back and the legs?

The backs could use some re-staining to freshen it up.

If I do that, should I try to keep the same color as the legs?

Would it be odd if the legs were a different color from the backs (like a brushed silver color).

Basically, I'd love your ideas on what I can do. Thanks so much!

Thanks! Michelle
