The next chair to be resurrected from "nannerish ugly" to fresh, bold and beautiful :-)
The dusky pink fabric and smelly wadding and foam is gone, and after a few hours of sanding so has that dark stain. Yes it took a bit of elbow grease and sweat to get rid of that dark stain but now its finally ready for a fresh coat of paint.
These fabrics arrived right on Christmas eve so it felt like an early Christmas present for me. Purchased here at Hawthorne Threads which I can thoroughly recommend. The next step is to decide on the right fabric combination and a coordinating paint colour. Decisions, decisions.... any input would be greatly welcomed :-)
