Happy New Year!
I had several parcels arrive today, one of which contained a set of four chairs. Now, the chairs are definitely NOT Tudor (they're Stuart, at the earliest, with really ugly white upholstery), but I'm going to use a couple of them temporarily in the castle until I get my Jacobean house going :)
I bought them in spite of the upholstery on them, in the hopes that I could perhaps recover them.
It took a little more prying than I thought to get the padding off, but in the end brute force won :)
After playing with a few different fabrics and leathers, I've chosen to cover two in a soft brown leather and two in a very pretty, tiny red pattern. Here they are!
I think it works with the sofa - Several years ago I made a dark blue wing chair with a William Morris print on it. The fabric came from a 100% silk men's tie made by the Metropolitan ...
