We have been working on our chair over the last several weeks. Today we met to finish the primer coat of paint and to work out a schedule on what’s to be done next.
Here’s the chair with its primer coat. We have ordered foam for the cushions but it hasn’t arrived yet. We are still have to paint the chair, make cushions with eco printed felt, make more leaves and then attach the leaves. We are also going to make a felt rock to go under the bench which hasn’t been started yet. So still quite a bit to do yet.
But look how wonderful the eco printed felt looks on the bench! Plus Paula made some great pillows. And if you look at the right side of the photo, Louise is holding up some leaves that will be meandering up that side with various vines wrapped around the chair. So we’re well on our way. It’s an interesting process figuring out how we’re going to deal with different issues that arise on the structure of the chair. We’re having fun!
That looks like a fun project and re-purposing into the bargain, such a good idea. Love the eco-printed felt and the leaves. I’m sure it’s going to look wonderful. Don’t forget to let us see the finished job. 🙂
Great Ruth, looks totally different !
Thanks! It is definitely changing 🙂
It’s coming along beautifully! The eco dyed felt really looks good.
Thanks Lyn, Paula does a wonderful job with eco printing.
The eco printing looks great, I love how you have managed to make a mirror image on each side of the bench with the leaves.
Thanks Teri! That’s Paula’s doing with the eco printing. She’s a wizard!
It’s coming along nicely. I love the eco prints.
Thanks Marilyn, the eco prints are definitely going to be the star of the design.
It’s looking really good! How many are taking part altogether?
Thanks Zed. There are 10 chairs altogether being done. You can see my friend Deb’s chair behind ours in most of the photos.
