This was my grandma's chair. My dad bought it for her after WWII. I was given the chair after my grandma passed away. I always liked it - it has a neat curved shape that is perfect to curl up in and those curved wooden arms were so cool. But the chair had seen better days - the upholstery was pretty frayed, thus the green throw to cover up the holes.
My dad has a friend who reupholsters items as a hobby, so for Christmas he got the chair recovered for me. Here is what it looks like now:
Not only did he recover the fabric, but he refinished the wood and replaced the dozens of brass tacks.
Here is the back - love the tacks!
There even was fabric left over, so he made two matching pillows with piping and buttons.
So wonderful to have this piece of family history have restored!
