Just need to attach the hinges, wax up the legs and do the braid inside the box and then it’s all done!
It’s been a long haul but worth it in the end…Once she’s fully finished I’ll post some before and after shots.
Refitted the Chaise back, which was a little tricky…but then got to work on fixing the webbing and the hessian base, it’s looking different again. This will be ready for the foam layer, webbing and calico cover…Let’s see what another week brings!
The line of the fabric must be placed on straight – it’s held down with some staples and then once sure of the position, I used some ‘back-tacking’ strip which is fixed with staples, this combination gives a perfect straight edge. All four pieces have been placed in position up to the corners.
I need to put the ‘back’ part of the chaise back on now, so I can complete the outside covering…Lets see where I get to next week!
The internal box has been lined with a doubled thickness of polyester wadding, secured with adhesive.
I’ve placed the bottom lining section first and then worked on the sides…so now I’ll need to work on the tricky corner sections and finally the ends.
