Project winged armchair finished!


This winged armchair is now moving home to one of my neighbour and good friend Eva. I made double welt cords and glued them on the chair. Regular pipings on the cushion. Here’s a good tutorial on how to make double welt cords/pipings. http://heartsandsharts.com/double-welt-piping-tips-tricks/



This is how the armchair looked before it was painted and upholstered.

I’ve got a visitor…


…today at my workshop. It’s nice when old – and new – friends drop by. Anci – who is a master of painting with chalk paint – took this photo of me when I’m painting one of the two armchairs I bought the other day.
