WHO KNOWS THESE THINGS ???

I am under the firm belief that you can find anything on the computer.. But it is still amazing to me! Why and How does it all get here and why would someone know all of this stuff. I Googled antique love seat and found someone that knew about this old (really Old) love seat I am about to undertake...


He told me that my Fainting Seat is found on page 777 of the 1902 Sears Catalog.


WHO WOULD KNOW THAT ???


"1902" That would be right there in my memory bank!!! LOL But boy am I glad someone knew what I was talking about... I was clueless...


It was given to me this summer by a friend cleaning out her garage. She knew she had owned it for over 50 years. It had been redone, but not like the original. I want to take it back as close as I can get it...


But wow what a mess it is. It is going to take me at least a couple of months. The whole thing needs reworked. (That should take me up to just about the time to plant my seeds inside)
Well here it is...
Do you see the piece in the background, that is the back of it.. BAD REALLY BAD...




The arms lift and lay flat, but it should be done in 3 sections. The middle and the arms are not done all as one piece. I have most of the fabric off and the inside is nasty. A lot of work needs done on the frame work. But I will figure it out and refinish the wood then start on the fabric.

It is going to be beautiful when it is done.

JUST HAVE TO REMEMBER A POSITIVE ATTITUDE... THAT IS ALL IT TAKES....

"I CAN DO THIS"

I CAN REALLY!!!


I just have to keep believing it!!!

SEE THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR WINTER GO FAST

A CRAZY PROJECT LIKE THIS!!

JUMP IN AND JUST TRY SOMETHING NEW!!!

YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Have a Good One,

Lynn

PS.. To be continued at a later date...

What a project you have there! My Mom and my Aunt had an upholstery business. They made lots of slip covers in the 50's. My Aunt broke her hip and was in bed at our house...My Dad would lift a wing chair up over her on the bed, and she would work on it while recuperating. We had fabric all over the house in different stages of finishing.Sadly, I didn't pay attention and have never done this kind of work.

Lynn, what a wonderful furniture piece! It will be well worth all of the work when it is finished. We will want to see the finished product.
