Last week the Big T and I deconstructed our $5 charity shop armchair, removing the old upholstery and stripping layers of yellowing varnish off the wood frame.
Yesterday, I began the process of re-staining and varnishing the wood; and collected the upholstery materials together. I plan to
start with practice on the chair seat. It detaches, and because the whole wooden frame will be fabric-covered, it doesn’t need to be varnished.
Wish me luck!
