All dressed up and ready to go

Remember this sofa ?

I first blogged about it in Feb 2010. It was a wedding anniversary present from A to me.

It spent a few months being stripped and decontaminated (it had woodworm). Then it went away to be repaired and repolished. When it came back, it looked like this. It was quite light, I could bear-hug and lift it about.

I started on the upholstery in Sept 2010. Here are few stages this sofa went through.

Putting on substantial weight,

Nearly there. At this stage, it was really heavy. I needed A's help to get it to class.

And here it is finally done.

I am making something called a sofa table to go with this beauty.

What a beautiful job you have made of the restoration. You must be so proud to have given this old heap a new elegant life once again. :D
