|All cleaned up and looking fine!|
The varnish that was initially applied to the arms is worn in places and buckled. I did consider sanding them back and just polishing up the timber, but decided against it as I felt it would make them look too 'new'. Instead I just used some Gilly Stephenson's Orange Oil to give the timber a nice glow- it also smells divine- and to keep it in top condition. A quick coat of Armor All to the seats and they look stunning. I love the warm glow and comforting feel that they instantly add to the living room.
The cushions were cheap and cheerful and add a quick splash of colour to the room without overpowering the beauty of the chairs themselves. The aqua and grey cushions were $4 each from KMart, the olive green corduroy was $15 from Target and the silver and green peacock design was $30 on sale from the "Bed Bath 'n Table" outlet at Birkenhead Point.
