Upholstering

IMG_7726IMG_7615

Last weekend I attended a upholstery course.

I wanted to redo a chair, and learn how to do it!

Gunn Iren Sørgård owns Galleri Møbelstoff in Haugesund, and works

with upholstery on a daily basis!

A really great teacher! So patient!

Needed that with my enormous, old, worn-out chair!!

Oh lord what a project….

1 step:  Strip the chair. Keep the fabric pieces whole! They are to be copied!

2 step: Cover the chair with this white soft covering.

3 step: Cut the fabric, sew and staple it to the chair.

Sounds easy, huh?

Didn`t manage do finish it all up, but thought I could show you anyway!

The light blue leo fabric is leopold from Clark & Clarck- Borge.

Isn`t it lovely?

Carrying the chair out of my car, I just had to take a picture on my dock!

Bitt av basillen.

Møbeltapeseringsbasillen.

Denne stolen trengte fornyelse. Og det fikk den!

For en stol. For en design!

Stoffet var slitt og polstringen var gått i oppløsning (!!)

Det nye stoffet valgt er Maximus, farge Mineral.

Deilige farger i lysblå, grå og  beige, vevd sammen til et slitesterkt tekstil.

Ha en finfin feiring!!!

Demontering av stolen og avkledning er første skritt.

Nok av stifter og spikre må ut….

Tålmodighet.
