Old chair recovered with mid century fabric.
My neighbor gave me a chair, which originally had turquoise vinyl and had been redone, probably in the 1960s, with yellow vinyl.
I discovered a (bark cloth?) bedspread in my basement that had been in my grandmother’s house back in the 1950s. I soaked it in quilt soak and was able to salvage enough fabric to cover the chair and make cording.
I don’t have a BEFORE before picture, because I’m extremely impulsive about projects and tend to dive in and get up to my elbows before I think to take pictures.
This is the yellow vinyl that came off it.
Old foam on the chair back, old padding on the chair seat.
New foam for the back.
New seat cover.
It’s stapled to the bottom.
Arms screwed back on. Done!
