The next project!

Postby beck » Fri May 04, 2012 9:15 pm

We are redecorating and doing our kitchen in red and black.

Bren wanted a chair for the head of the table that was unusual so I hunted eBay til I found this

And turned it into this

Image

I was tempted to leave it as it was in the first pic but the cushioning had given way and of course to fix the cushioning problem had to take the fabric off and that ruined it.

Image

The cushioning had hessian strapping, HUGE springs and the seat padding was wadding with wood shavings in the middle of it.

Wow, that's some interesting upholstering!

How did you deal with all the old stuff? What did you replace it with?

I have a piano stool and 2 old nursing chairs I need to do, but haven't done an upholstered project yet.

@Twinkletoes
We just ripped all the old stuff off, there were more nails then I was expecting (everything was nailed down/in :loopy: ) so it got messy to pull apart. We are doing it on a budget so I used a throw pillow that I no longer use that was perfect size for the seat. Brendan cut some pine as slatting for the cushion to sit on. The material is actually patchwork squares that I got from eBay and sewed together in a pattern I liked.
