Stripping back

Yesterday I had my first upholstery class and it was great fun. I always find it a bit nerve-racking to join a new group of people but everyone was so friendly and helpful, there were two of us newbies and the tutor did a great job of getting us started on our projects.

My first task was to strip off the outer fabric and see what was underneath.

There were FOUR layers of fabric!

Unfortunately, the ‘stuff’ (technical term!) inside the chair was rotten so all the back had to be stripped back to the frame, I’m told the seat can be rescued! So this is what it looks like now…

I really hope the old saying ‘It always looks worse before it gets better’ is true!!

Until next time,
