Restoration Project: Mid-Century Armchair

Just a quick update for tonight. I completed another restoration project last weekend (hooray!!) – a mid-century armchair.

When we got the chair, it came with original white leather covers, which have turned yellow over the years. And it made this really annoying squeaky sound when you sit on it that goes, POOOH-oooshhh…! I decided to give it new coats of varnish and new covers so we won’t have to sit on the dirty, used covers and also so it doesn’t make that funny noise when one sits on it.

The sewing part was not easy, just as I expected, because it looked quite difficult having to make holes on the back cover for the metal frame and screws at the sides to go through. Nevertheless, I managed and it didn’t turn out so bad-looking after all!! Phew~ But I think I’ll take a break from sewing for quite some time, haha.

This was taken using a DSLR.

And this by iPhone. Not bad, huh? I actually think the iPhone’s one looks more vintage-y. Haha!
