It is March, isn’t it? You think that and now it is snow again today. Yippee!!
Anyway, in honor of Dr. Seuss’ recent birthday, I found this to be quite amusing.
Progress is being made on the chair. I love working on my projects, but I wish that I could do it all the time and not just in spurts.
But… I digress. The chair was really wobbly, but those things can be fixed pretty easily – and it is what makes them cheap to buy. When I pulled off the bottom webbing, I could see why it was wobbly:
There’s your problem, ma’am. It was an easy enough fix. Glue, hammer the joints back together and a few screws. Now it is solid again. I love easy fixes.
I was trying to decide on the finish of the chair. This is what it was:
It doesn’t show too well, but it had kind of a speckled finish. I don’t know if someone did that or what, but I decided to go ahead and paint it instead of stripping it down because I really liked how the off white would look with the purple fabric. So, I chalked up some of the moonlight white that is the trim paint for our house and went to town:
I decided to wax this piece instead of poly since it isn’t like a table or dresser that will have stuff sitting on it. I am in the midst of 3 coats of wax on it. Then I used the old fabric pieces as a template to cut out the new ones and got to work on the back panel.
I actually remembered to put this piece on with the reverse side in since it shows through the back.
The air is so dry around here and it seems everything sticks to the suede with static. I imagine Pixie is going to be getting hair all over this chair…
The inside of the chair now gets its foam back put on:
And then that will get covered.
Of course, I now need to go out and get new staples or tacks that are longer since the other layers fit into a channel, but not tonight with the weather. I hope to get this chair done by the weekend 😀
