I’m not a reupholstering expert AT ALL. When I picked up this $20.00 rocker at an antique show, I thought I would just add more fluff to the chair then recover it with new fabric. You know… reupholstering a chair the “I’ll wing it” way. ;) Thank goodness I didn’t do that! The fabric was so old, it was almost crunchy. As I took the fabric and the layer of cotton off the chair, I discovered it was stuffed with hay. Yes, HAY. Can we say fire hazard??
The chair needed to be stripped down to the bones. That meant I was going to have to build it back up. While I’m sure this chair is not put together the “expert” way, it worked, looks pretty good, and it’s very comfy to sit in. What more can you ask of a chair?
