Antique Rocking Chair with a Modern Flair (SOLD)
|This is a timeless furniture piece that will last for generations.|
I knew I would reupholster the seat. What I didn't know is that there were three layers to remove! Trust me when I say it was a lot of staples and upholstery tacks to remove. But in the end it was definitely worth the effort. The seat was reupholstered with all new materials including the seat pad, batting, and fabric.
|1st layer in background (black). 2nd layer 1950s or 60s?|
|3rd layer. The fabric was obviously dirty, but it was so old it would fall apart when touched.|
|I considered leaving the original finish. It looked OK, but I decided it needed paint to freshen it up.|
|Close up. I love the subtle carving in the wood.|
|Close up of fabric.|
It measures 27.5 length x 31 height x 17 width. It is available for sale at The Lebanon Peddler's Mall, ROW 5, BOOTH #139.
