Mid Century Modern Shaw Walker RedoJanuary 22nd, 2010 in member junk
i had purchased this vintage 1960s era shaw walker aluminum frame guest chair right before the holidays .. unsure what to do with it .. we tried selling it and it didn't sell .. this months issue of country living has an article on using old sweaters to recover things - i thought i would try recovering this chair .. i used a large size sweater and it was the perfect amount of sweater - with some left over for another project. .. i love the way it turned out and i was surprised at how easy it was to do .. for those who want to know, i did not remove the old original upholstery, so you could remove the sweater material and have the original upholstery .. i did however place a layer of batting over the old upholstery to soften the seat and back a little ..
