This tub chair that somebody brought to me, looked like it had seen better days but was still very comfortable to sit in.

When stripped back I discovered that the wooden frame was surrounded by a metal frame in an octagonal shape.  This made it a little tricky to upholster as there wasn’t a lot of wood to bang tacks into.

All the stuffing around the back and the base of the chair needed replacing, but the seat and the inside back were fine.

My client had chosen a really bold red faabric with a large flower design.  This really did give the chair an amazing facelift.

I covered the seat first and then the inside of the back.  The fabric was folded into pleats to give the back it’s shape. The back ot the chair back went on next and then piping was attached to the bottom panel which was wrapped around the whole of the base of the chair.

Wow !  What a transformation !
