Reupholstering Wingback Chairs.... Again

Two years ago I reupholstered one of two wingback chairs I inherited from my mom.  In the rental there was only room for one wingback so I just did one.  No, two years later I want to use both of them as dining chairs.  So not only do they not match... but I want to change the fabric on the one that is already done!  This weekend I tackled the demo of the original wingback.  Now I need to demo the chair that I did... I feel like I used twice as many staples as the original!

This is a pic from the holidays... but here they are at my table.  Plans for the table too!

Here is my plans for the chairs and the remainder of the room.  I want to go with a grey neutral and mix in some pops of chartreuse, aqua, and navy!

LOVE the textile selections! I am dying to try my hand at upholstery. I have a pink bergere in my bedroom that needs some leopard love.
