This past October my mom and grandpa came to visit for a few weeks. It was a great privilege to have my 85 year old grandpa as our guest. We did a lot of driving, showing him the country side of Southern Ontario, stopping to have our simple picnics under autumns amber oak trees all the while being entertained by the girls antics.
Because grandpa is deaf driving and site seeing was a great way to connect.
However, I had a project that I needed some company to work on and grandpa was just the person for the job. Grandpa has done quite a bit of upholstering. So while some one went to work to pay for my life of leisure, we spent some time ripping apart this chair.
I bought it at a garage sale for $10 this past summer, and it was love at first sight.
I knew that with a new upholstering job it would be a stunning piece for any room in the house and for the kids to read their books on. It’s my first piece, to put give me some experience for the wing back chair in my living room.
It turned out beautifully, don’t you agree? Thanks to grandpa, and my mom’s tutorship.
My grandpa would let me struggle for 30 minuets or so on folding over a corner, over and over again then say, ” I think you need to staple this piece down first then that corner will fall into place like this, and of course he was right. I’m pleased, so now I am eying up the wing back. Jason says leave it alone, but the gimp is coming off…. so we’ll see.
