Wow!  I am so impressed by upholstery.  It's something I need to learn to do, but I'm intimidated.... Shocked

Most importent is that when taking stuff apart you rember what goes where and what " overlaps" what.

Its fun and really rewarding

That is jolly impressive.  I've refurbished cushions before but I  would be intimidated by the wood trim.

Thank you?

The woodtrim is way easier to deal with than cushions.
Its a solid border that you can use , cushions are soft all the way .

Good work!  And the color you chose keeps it looking vintage.
