they had it reupholstered 

this picture is up the steps in front of the loft bedroom,
the chair and stool was our grandparents.
the floor was salvaged from the old cabin that was also
our grandparents..
this is a large canvas picture of the old cabin that hangs in the stairways
it was given to Steve and Jana for Christmas by son and daughter in law..
