If you notice it's a different color in the next picture. It's because I experimented with the color Blue Spruce (Valspar) first... and then came the hammer.
The wings went bye bye! So did the little spindle arms. That left big holes, but nothing that a bunch of wood filler couldn't handle!
So, after a little sanding, a new color....and some cushions....
From outdated traditional, to mo-modern!
