Default Leather Chair

Hi There,

Just thought I'd show off what can be achieved with old items posted on jumbletown. I recieved the attached old chair form Nau, a jumbletowner last year. After 18 weeks at my evening class I've got a lovely reupholstered chair. If anyone has an old chair or footstool or anything really that they have tucked away under your stairs or garage I'd love to bring back to life. Nau, if you see this I hope you are happy with my end result :-)

Great work ycul, you brought the old Dame back to life! I did something similar recently (not nearly as good though) I'll post pics later.

These are my most recent treasures
the side boards need a bit of TLC still but promising no?
The beautiful chair was upholstered in a dull tapestry, I recovered it with an old linen dress I had hanging in the wardrobe, took me about 10 mins :-)

Default Great Work

Love your chair, unusual fab design. I'm hooked on restoration now. I got a lovely old cabinet from a jumbletowner but unfortunately he broke the glass while trying to fit it into my car. As its curved glass I've found it diffucult to find someone who can replace it. Shame. Keep up the good work. Ycul
