For all purposes this is a new chair. I sent this off to be recovered:
and I got this back! ... new springs, new foam, new upholstery.
The first thing I said was that I loved it because it didn't look too new. The delivery man laughed because he said that's why people have things recovered ... so they look new. Not me, I love the mottled finish of the fabric, it sort of looks lived in.
I'm recovering an ottoman in the same fabric as my wing chair is being re-upholstered in.
It needed a bit of bling, so I purchased some upholstery tacks from Lee Valley. They only came in Brassy Brass and Shiny Silver (my descriptions .. not theirs). I got the brass, but wanted to take the shine off a bit, so I sprayed them with my trusty Oil Rubbed Bronze.
Time to dry ... and then I'll tack them on the ottoman.
Hi. I live just outside Toronto, Ontario, and am interested in home design and DIY on a budget. I am in my 5th house since becoming single again ... my 10th home since leaving my childhood home - I obviously love the moving process. I also quilt, scrapbook, and love to cook, and spend time with my family.
