Here are pictures of our house in Toronto, taken at various stages.


We decided the ~5-year-old dining room chairs could use a little sprucing up.

Note the fading in spots on the seat. Those lighter splotches are actually on the fabric, not lens flare.

We measure and cut a section of fabric we bought at a fabric store.

Re-cover the seat with the fabric. We just used a staple gun to hold things together.
