Hi everyone! The first session of my new venture consisted of taking the chair apart. I have to admit, that was pretty interesting. First we marked the chair’s fabric for where each piece goes,because once we take it apart, that becomes the pattern.
Taking it apart was not an easy task. It was all tacked together. Not one staple was in this chair. You can imagine the million tacks we pulled out.
Lot’s of tugging and pulling to get the seams apart, while preserving the cloth.
Those hole pluggers were some tough cookies to get out..
Almost finished… I always wondered what kept the buttons tucked in. Well – here was my answer.
Tacks, tacks and more tacks…..
All apart.. and this is what we are looking at… Ready to cover him up…
The frame goes home with me to sand and refinish…
So goodbye to the old Don look…..
I’ll keep you posted on the next step… Thanks for following me on this re-upholstery journey.
