Happy Dance

A big thank you to those of you who have encouraged me along the way while I have been renovating my chair – it’s made a big difference 🙂

I am pleased to announce that the chair is now officially finished. The final stitches and tweaks have been done. And just in time too as my final lesson was on Tuesday – thanks Sue 🙂

This is a reminder of what the chair started off like and its journey of being stripped back and built back together again…

chair 2

These were the final stitches in my final class…


and now…


lovely deep buttoning, comfortable seat and gorgeous fabric; cleaned and polished legs and the cotton reel which saved this chair from a skip still in place 😉


Until next time,

    This… is… AWESOME! (I had to go full screen to appreciate it in all it’s glory!) It’s great having the comparison from the old cover; the original looks like a flat ironing board with legs but the new one looks like it’s bursting from it’s tidy seams!

  2. I’ve only just discovered your blog so I haven’t followed your chair project all the way through, but looking at the photos I can see what a labour of love it has been. You must be so proud of the result – it looks very professional!

Thank you for your comment :)
