Recovering My Office Chair

Recovering My Office Chair

This blog post is coming out really late,  I apologize for its lateness. I have officially moved to North Carolina!! I will be updating my website and social media soon. Also blog posts about my new house will be coming shortly.

Now that the formalities are over let talk about this chair that I LoooooVE!!  The chair was not in too bad of shape when I found it. The chair needed to be recovered and some of the veneer was coning off. I decided first to take off the seat and open up this bad boy's cushion. Surprisingly, I found horse hair instead of a cushion which I believe to mean it has not been recovered since it was made. I am no expert by any means but this leads me to believe it is an older chair since more modern chairs would have used a cushion, not horse hair. 

At the beginning I tried to fix the veneer on the chair front back and paint over the fix but after some time the veneer started to come off some more. Therefore I just scraped off all the veneer and repainted it. 

I took the chair seat down to it's frame and replaced the webbing and added a chair cushion because I am not going to go find horse hair. I am not sure about you but I like some modern conveniences and cushions happen to be one of them.

Overall I think the chair came together nicely. Now this chair had a little more to it because of it's age but for most side chairs changing the fabric cover is a very simple project.
