A Work in progress

Snagged this table and chairs dining set off of CL for a steal a few weeks ago. I had been looking for months for a good set that was either

A) in my budget and finished or
B) a good price and fairly easy to "finish"

 Well, this one was "gold" to me! Needed minimal sanding...
 Seats weren't even attached...just had old pillows in for stuffing...
 So, I set to work, and my kids wanted to help! NO PROBLEM! lol
Started pulling out staples in the seats and removing the pillows and fabric. Let it sit in my living room for a couple weeks. (lol Can't always find the time when I want to.)
Then roughed it up a bit with sandpaper and...here it is a few weeks later. Still a work in progress, but getting there. Now, painted a glossy black and awaiting the fabric to come in the mail for the seats. Already have the cushions cut and ready too! Yeah! 
I took a few pics along the way and will post a tutorial and tips I learned as I worked when I get the finished product done! It's getting there!

How awesome! I would love to see the tutorial because that seems like a daunting task to me.
