I was at a bit of a loose end this afternoon so I grabbed this old chair I have had for years and got stuck into it. It had pink fur on it after it's last transformation and had found a home in my daughter's bedroom but it was getting more use than her drawers were and was most often buried under a pile of clothes. After recovering it with a lovely neutral french linen...okay, okay, it's drop-cloth, I decided to add some buttons to the seat pad, so I covered these in a black linen...that part's true :o) At one point (that's a pun, you'll see why in a minute) I had the seat part resting on my lap and was pushing quite firmly to get the loooong upholstery needle through all the thicknesses. It didn't seem to want to budge...then I felt a searing pain in my thigh.....just wish I'd had the camera handy, might have added some drama to my post!
The chair is now listed on ebay and I hope it finds a nice home.
