finished at last! this is the chair i have been restoring.
at the beginning of the year i was given a beautiful book 'design*sponge at home' by grace bonney which is full of inspiring restoration projects, so i went out and found myself a lost chair to put some tlc into...the chair i found was covered in worn out green vinyl that i stripped off to reveal a beautiful curved plywood back, as pictured below. above is the chair freshly sanded, stained green and cushion recovered. have loved the whole process and am on the look out for the next one...
this re-covered suitcase is another project i have been working on and was inspired by another blog that i follow http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/ this is written by an american lady called elsie larson and it contains lots of quirky projects and crafty inspiration.
