Original Chair from the second hand dealers $20 what a bargain. The first task was to glue the chair leg where a piece of wood had broken off. This was being held on by the yellow tape till glue is set.
The chair is now striped down, timber polished & castor wheels fitted.
I am concentrating on removing the tacks without chipping the timber. The chair had so many tacks and pin holes it must have been recovered many times.
New material, backing & wading being cut ready
Stapling the new material to the seat base, it was so easy using my husbands air compressor & staple gun.
The base now recovered and ready to be inserted back onto the chair.
I think it is coming up a treat. The weather is lousy but me & my husband David are having a ball restoring this chair.
Decided to make a pillow type padding for the back to make it easier for future recovering.
New back padding stapled on and ready for the new material. Nearly finished & having so much fun.
Chair finished and ready for use in my sewing room. All up including all material & the chair it cost just under $50. I think $50 well spent, it's magic.
Trying out my new chair, I think it's perfect just the right height with enough padding and back support to be comfortable.
My Girls Nikki & Missy in their usual spot when I'm in my sewing room.
Well if I say so my self, it was a great project for a rainy day with great results.
