The good news is that my friend Robin inherited her grandmothers side chair.
The bad news is that it was sitting in not so great storage for 10 years. It fared OK, on the inside but not so much on the outside. It has some moisture damage around the bottom skirt but as you can see I tore that part away along with the rest of it. The skirt is a little dated so it was not replaced.
I always take a dozen pictures just in case I cant remember how it is to go back together. Here is my first dig in.
She decided not to keep the buttons either. OK I may have given her a nudge to loose them. ( I think it looks cleaner this way)
I think it went back together pretty well. Now she has something to make her smile and think of her granny when she goes into her living room.
Now all I have to do is 1 Duvet, 2 Pillow Shams, 4 Curtain Panels 2 Wing Back Chairs, Then maybe I can get to work on my personal projects..... Its good to b busy again :-)
