Thought I’d update you on the upholstery, not least because it might spur me to get on with the dining chairs of which there are still only three re-covered! So here’s a series of photos showing the progress:
As you can see this is a labour of love and it is hardly surprising that if you want upholstery done for you you will be charged a fortune. It not only takes time but is surprisingly physical... traditionally a man's job.
I am annoyed to realise I took no photos at yesterday's class so I can't show off the fact that I've now covered the horsehair with calico and cut out my actual fabric. Yes: I can at last see the end in sight!
