A couple of weeks ago I found this chair at the Rose Bowl flea market. It’s Danish and made of Walnut. When I bought it, it had a hideous covered seat – dirty pale pink with a faded floral pattern from the ’80′s I suspect. This got me excited … it meant I could reupholster the seat myself, with some of my fabric!
This is the first time I’ve upholstered something. I replaced the old layers of rotting fabric, disintegrating foam, wadding, old staples and masking tape and covered it with one of my space-to-think geometric fabrics.
I’m pleased :-)
