Thank you so much for your lovely comments, I am still finding my way around things in blogland!
This poor old chair has been dragged around and dumped in sheds on various properties over the past ten years or so, waiting to be re-vamped. I have decided that 2011 will be the year of UFOs (unfinished objects), and I seem to have accumulated a heap of them. So..........the old captain's chair is going to be the first project on my to-do list.
OK..........now I have told you about it, I will just have to find the tools and get on with the job!!
