Nan's Old Chair to Mum's New Chair

This Nursing Chair had stood in our Nan’s Living Room for many years. She always sat in it to do her crosswords, knitting or reading. It also became a favourite comfy place for the dog! So, when mum inherited it, there were scratches and scuffs, saggy and punctured fabric and a fair few dog hairs. But, even if this state, there was no way that Nan’s Old Chair was going to the tip.

Just a little makeover was required and it seemed like a great project to hone my re-upholstery skills! And get some extra Mother’s Day Brownie Points!! Deciding not to make it look exactly like it did when it was new, this gorgeous fabric and Prairie Blue paint was chosen. 

After stripping it right back, work began putting it all back together again. Here are few photos that show some of the processes it went through to become Mum’s New Chair…
