In case you haven’t noticed I love quotes. One of my many favourites is …
“Begin with the end in mind”
Like I’ve often said here, I have a real problem with going to car boots and charity shops as I see potential in everything!! There’s always something that can be ‘done’ to rejuvenate an old piece of furniture or clothing. But before I buy something I always ‘begin with the end in mind’. I will know exactly what I’m going to do with it before I part with my money.
When I bought the chair below, originally shown here, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it and it’s almost there. Here’s a few pics of my work in progress …
I started by giving it a good wash and scrubbing it down with some disinfectant (you never know where these things have been stored!). Then I removed the old fabric and seat pad with a stanley knife.
Then I ripped up a brown bag and used it to make a pattern for the seat.
I’m using the pattern to make a patchwork cushion for the seat pad
and finally I’m painting the chair. White … of course!
Finished pics to follow, hopefully over the weekend.
In the meantime …
