Our dining area is fairly small and I tire easily of shopping for furniture.  So after looking for a set of lightweight chairs with little result, I decided to just give our old Ikea chairs an overhaul.  I finally got all the materials and finished them about a week ago.  They are much sturdier and more comfortable than the original chairs.

The first chair taken apart – (I had to get gloves for the rest of them to avoid getting splinters.)
