Making it Lovely
This week I have been showing more than a passing interest in upholstered chairs, as you may recall , I intend to start an upholstery course in September at my local College. the lovely orange chair caught my eye over at www.makingitlovely.com and the other one I think I spotted on Apartment Therapy.
The chair below is the one I will be working on, and I pulled it out of the attic over the weekend in preparation of my fast approaching course start date. Its in a real sorry state, and I'm not sure what is going on with the underside, but it looks like its been shot with a shot gun three times! Nothing to do with my family, it was in the house when my parents moved in. Its also been attacked by woodworm at some point in its life, and I'm wondering if when I repaint it, the holes should be filled in, or if I should keep them as a celebration of its life or something like that.
I'm thinking of painting it a black, or may be a charcoal colour, and a bright vibrant colour on the seat.
By the way, is when you are reading this blog post and you spot that the chair in question is a really valuable antique worth thousands of pounds, do stop me before I paint it and render it totally worthless wont you! ( who am I kidding, chance would be a fine thing)
