Want to see how this:
Me too! More after the jump.
It was a warm Sunday summer evening when we stumbled across this chair in country yard sale. We were just coming back from enjoying a swim at a friend’s house.
I took the material off. It was DIRTY! The foam was dirty and full of animal hair. Yucky!
So we stripped it all the way down and sanded the entire chair.
“Don’t look at me, I’m hideous!”
“… but I’m starting to feel better after a full body scrub and
having my highlights done a staining.”
The chair was starting to look spiffy after a couple coats of polyurethane and the first large pieces of fabric.
Then I figured out how to make double welted cording (that’s fancy double cording), with my sewing machine’s zipper foot (using different feet is intimidating, but turned out to be easy). The cording made everything look pretty and polished.
And BAM – updated look!
