refinished dining room set

we bought this great little dining room set on craigslist way back in april.
it is a better size than the old one (smaller, but with an expandable leaf).

since then:
  1.  dave refinished the top of the table (it was pretty bad)
  2.  i reupholstered the chairs (they were really bad).

i love the fabric i found at jp knit & stitch.  i added an extra layer of iron-on interfacing for strength.   i also added extra foam this time because my first upholstery job could've used an extra layer of cushioning.

once the last 2 chairs are glued and repaired we'll have a the whole set!
