Rescuing a Found Treasure–Part III
Now it is time to start the actual re-covering process. I will use a household hammer and a phillips screwdriver.
I removed the cushion from the chair frame.
Removing the screws took a little time; they had been in place for some while. The uncovered frame was dusty and grimy so I washed the entire piece with a small amount of white vinegar in warm water and then rinsed and dried it.
Next I cut off the old burlap so that the original chair fabric was exposed. This gave me a smoother base for my new cushion cover.
In the my next post I will show how I finished the chair.
