Before and After

posted in: General

I have been looking for a while for a small seat, to place in the hallway, so that I can sit down to put on my walking boots. A couple of weeks ago, I bought this lovely, sturdy little chair, for £5 in the local Remake shop. Planned to re-cane the damaged seat but discovered that my stash of cane is now well past its best and it was going to cost me £50 to acquire some new. That would have made this a very expensive project. So a change of plan took place. I asked my other half to cut me a circle of plywood, which I then covered with reupholstery foam. Then I used some Harris Tweed, from my extensive (!) supply of purchases, to cover it. Himself then applied a little dark wax polish to the chair frame and fixed the seat in place. Perfect.
