Good gracious, we love a good over-estimation (well, in this case anyway!). Our up-to-10 week wait for Dandelion velvet? It’s over. It took just 2 weeks, and sweet jeebs, it was worth every day of checking in on my West Elm account to see the word shipped. (Okay, maybe I didn’t do that every day.)
In any case, it’s beautiful! Now, to figure out how to take this chair apart so we can work on the frame (the sanding, oiling and/or staining as mentioned right here) while our favorite upholstery shop works their magic – the same folks that took care of Grandma’s chair. In other words, we hope to save a little bit of money by dropping the cushioned part of our chair off to the pros while we bring the frame back to life.
As for our part, we’re scared. Covered screws and a fair share of wood glue + pegs are holding our lovely chair together, and it won’t be as simple to take apart as we’d like.
Has anyone out there tackled the disassembly of a mid-century chair? Are we nuts?
