Last week I set myself the project of revamping an old chair I had picked up at the recycling center, it had been sitting in my house for too long waiting for it's transformation. I knew it had potential as it has some lovely detail in the original design. Firstly I had to strip it of the old rank cloth on its seat and take out old staples and nails in the wood, (the worst job ever, luckily I'm not allergic to house dust yuk! ) After sanding it down I then painted it duck egg blue/green, (already looking better) and left it to dry for 24 hours. Then I had to make the cushion for the seat and cover with wadding. Choosing the right cloth (Cath kidston) to cover the seat was important as it gives the final impact of "beautiful chair". This all took quite a few hours as you can imagine, but I am very pleased with the result and welcome any comments.
(This chair will be available to buy from the web site soon)
