Renewing an armchair

I have had the chance to meet 3 of my great grandmothers. This armchair belonged to one of them so, it is very old.

I asked my mom to sew a fabric cover for it (I didn’t feel capable of doing it myself). Then I sanded the wooden legs and cut and nailed a new wooden bottom because the old one was broken. Later, I glued some buttons on it for the fabric cover to stay in place and finally, here you have a second life for the baby room armchair.

He tenido la oportunidad de conocer 3 de mis bisabuelas. Esta butaca pertenecía a una de ellas, así que es muy vieja.

Le pedí a mi madre que me cosiera una funda de ropa (yo no me veía capaz de hacerlo). Después lijé las patas de madera, corté y atornillé una nueva base de madera porque la antigua estaba rota. Luego, enganché ahí unos botones para sujetar la funda y finalmente, ahí tenéis la segunda vida de la butaca para la habitación del bebé.
