For the tiny sum of £25. we bought this wooden framed and oh-so-comfy armchair, but as you can see, the fabric was in a pretty disgusting state.
Having already bought a new, thicker seat pad, some lovely cream woven fabric and some tacks I was all set to get to work. I sewed up a new seat cushion cover and then with hammer and pliers in hand, ripped away all the old fabric, unearthing a wealth of dust and stuffing inside. Then taking my trusty staple gun, I attached the new fabric, finishing off the back piece with the tacks and a little bit of freehand sewing. And all whilst listening to archived Desert Island Discs on BBC iPlayer.
