Reupholstering theater seats complete!
The arms got a little faded sitting outside for the month-long "natural" deep cleaning (i.e. getting rained on and exposed to bacteria-killing UV light!), but refinishing them will be no problem. We also need to get a board to bolt the seats down to...they are a little wobbly, but the springs in the seat make them surprisingly cozy. Hopefully the new upholstery will relax a little with time because I think I pulled the fabric too tight on the backs. It was a learning process, so I wasn't too picky.
I liked the original red, but with our transitory lifestyle, it is difficult to know what color scheme we are going to have to work with at our next residence (fingers crossed for sooner rather than later, and permanent rather then temporary).
Below are some oh-so satisfying before shots.
