Vintage Dining Chair Quick Reupholster

I adore these chairs, but of course the seats needed to be recovered.  I chose two different fabrics and reupholstered four of the chairs in a heavy gray wool and the other two in a gray & white pattern.

I recovered both times simply with a staple gun (my favourite tool), and it took only an hour.
