Burlap goes down over the springs, and gets stapled and then tacked into place.
This mess, plus the little roll in the front, foam, and then batting:
Sorry these pictures aren't the best. I snapped them quick with my iphone! You might notice that the center support under the chair has been chewed up by a dog, (my guess). I've got to replace that, too, but I go so excited about upholstery I've evidently left that til the end.
All trimmed up and pretty, ready for fabric!
Ta'da! The burlap is on and tight and beautiful and everything is right in the world! I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable this seat of this chair is! Now on to the back!
At this point my phone started to die, please excuse my charger! Burlap gets stapled over the jute straps to hold in all the good stuff.
The "good stuff, all layered up and ready for batting!
And after fighting with burlap for an hour, the back was done and so was I!
For now, this chair adventure is over, and I'm turning my attention back to the bookcases, and reading for book reviews. Hopefully, sometime in the near future, I'll have a little tour ready for ya! Til' then, keep tabs on the pieces as they come along and make sure to visit the book reviews, starting Monday!
