I got that chair

I went back to St. V. de P. this morning, with both monsters in tow, and got the chair. It's kind of plain, but so basic I think it will work with any of a number of cover options. I wish I could afford to have it reupholstered in leather by a professional, but one quick phone call showed me that was probably not realistic. I'm thinking about buying a hide from a leather place online and doing it myself... Probably not a good beginner project. I have total confidence in my ability to reupholster it with fabric. Or just make a nice slip cover, so I guess I'll start with that. It might not get done until fall, though. Ah, dreaming of the fall...

The weather continues to be beastly. We are just hunkered down in the air conditioning and hoping for it to break. The lawn needs mowing, the weeds need pulling, the gutters need cleaning, but no one can face working outdoors in the sauna.

Hope you post before and after pics of the chair. My dad is convinced he can dye 6 swivel dining chairs rather than pay to have them recovered. hehehe I keep forgetting to have a look to see how hard they are to take apart. One of these days I'll get to it. hehehe

I agree with staying inside. I need groceries but if I go in town I've got tons of running to do. Would rather scrounge for food and stay cool. LOL
