One in every of our previous neighbors in Silver Lake was eliminating these chairs and we took them with the intention to refinish them as quickly as we moved someplace with more room. Proper earlier than transferring into the brand new loft, we lastly bought to present them the eye they deserved!
We eliminated the previous varnish, frivolously sanded the whole chair after which completed them with one among Varathane’s wood stains in “American Walnut.” The previous yellow cushions went within the trash and we made model new backside cushions.
I created a paper stencil from the wooden inside the unique cushion and used that to chop a model new piece of plywood utilizing a jigsaw. Then I hooked up 2 inch thick foam with spray adhesive to the highest of the plywood. The froth was then lined with batting that was staple gunned to the again of the plywood. The gray wool material was one other Micheal Levine Loft discover! The material was hooked up in the identical approach because the batting besides with about 10 instances as many staples holding it on in order that the material was easy. As an alternative of constructing new again cushions we purchased easy white cotton pillows from Ikea.
