Chair Makeover

















I got this project from a client and after beginning to pull it apart realised that one of the coil springs was broken. As I have no experience with things of that nature I got some advice from an upholsterer friend who recommended pulling all the springs out and replacing them with elasticated webbing, which I did. It was quite the challenge, but have to say, it has come up a treat. Sandy painted the woodwork. She always doea a great job!!
The fabric is a lovely navy and white stripe. (Was fun getting the stripes all lining up!)

That is an awesome transformation. So you replaced the springs and it's just as comfy as before? Great job lining up stripes! Why did you not sew piping on the bias? Just wondering? Great job and thanks for sharing.

Ange you really are one clever cookie.
The new life you've brought to this chair is fabulous and I'm sure it will be a treasured place to sit and spend time for many years to come in its new glorious visage.

Happy day!
