the lovely but shabby chaise finally made it home after a little 'rest' in the shed while the braid arrived from Paris. the brief was to re-paint the tatty paintwork and recover the upholstery in fresh grey linen. it was a hugely satisfying job, not least because the transformation was massive...
|all painted surfaces sealed with beeswax|
|lovely choice of classic scroll gimp shows off both the paint and the fabric to their best|
|repairs to the woodwork disappeared beneath the painted and waxed surface|
|lots going on in this corner|
|waiting in the long grass for the trip home|
ALSO THIS WEEK:
this sweet chair also came through the shed to be re-sprung, repolished and given a smart new cover...
|the seat was stripped and wobbly frame re-glued before work began|
|happy pattern matching|
|elegant solution to a tricky corner|
AND LINED UP FOR NEXT WEEK:
this treasure is long-overdue some loving care and attention... i'll keep you posted!
