It's Back!

 If you remember about a month ago I said we were getting my husband's grandfather's chair reupholstered after months of searching for someone who works in leather.  This was what it looked like then with its cracked leather and vinyl covered cushion.

This is what it looks like now.  The leather is a bit redder than the original, but we discovered that the chair itself is probably a hundred years old, so the leather might have been brighter once upon a time!

    This is what it looked like ten minutes after we got the chair home.  My husband is very happy to have his chair back and to be sitting in it as everyone seems to sit - sideways with one leg flipped over the arm.



  1. Looks great! I'm glad to see it returned to its former glory!

  2. That is one fine looking chair!! May it last another 100 years. Hubby looks comfy. :)
