It probably sat in some Oma's living room for years and was obviously cared for.
The upholstery is actually in very good shape and the springs are in perfect condition.
I snapped it up and it's been sitting in Terry shop waiting for further instruction.
I was tempted to leave the original upholstery but opted rather to make a slip cover that can be washed and taken off if my mood reflects a little retro stylin'.
I ran down to the only local fabric store we have . .(grrr) and found this off white . . kind of a little too fancy fabric. It said dry clean only which I wasn't a fan of. I brought it home and threw it into the washing machine and the dryer to boot. Having firmly showed the fabric that I was having none of its silly fancy shmancy requirements, we decided to work together.
So, yesterday I set to cover up the 60's retro fabric with off white . . . work with whatever the room color currently is . . . . well adjusted washable fabric.
I'm relatively happy with it.
Today, the sun is shining just gloriously. I've made up some rollkuchen dough for supper and will post the results tomorrow. Not the weight gain generally reflective of a watermelon and rollkuchen feed, just the recipe itself.
So, off you go, have yourself a delightful day.
