Grandma’s Chair, renewed!

I’m really excited to show off this finished chair!  I had fun recovering it with some of Amy Butler’s new Love collection.  I ended up ripping some seams from the old cover to make sure I would have the proper fit.  I just cut the pieces like they were a pattern. 

The chair is pretty interesting, here’s some of the info on the underneath of the seat:

It also came with a handy tool (an allen wrench) secured by a loop, for when you need to take the chair apart.  I needed to replace the foam padding as part of this project as well.  Not sure if I used the right stuff, but it looks pretty good to me.  The old padding was so gross! It had disinegrated into tiny crumbs of sand = not good for sitting.
