It still needs one more sanding a another coat of sealer, but it will pretty much look like this when it's done. I now it's a bit silly to get excited over a chair, but I am so pleased with the outcome. I cannot wait until it becomes worn over time and a bit of the wood starts to show through...lovingly distressed! So, we still have another chair (which we should have done at the same time, but I was a bit anxious) and our dresser (which is going to take forever!!) to refinish. I am planning on the next two weeks to tackle those. We should have done these a lot sooner in the year, because it's blazing hot by 9:00am!
I just found this here on the PB website. Pretty comparable! We practically spent pennies on refinishing this chair...well, okay...dollars!
