When looking at this modern chair with an original back, it's hard to guess that until recently it was a real wreck. It took very little effort to rework. The material also went to a minimum.
Previously, the chair looked like this and wobbled in order.
First, remove the seat and get rid of the old upholstery.
We untwist the frame wherever possible.
We glue all the joints of the parts with wood glue, let the chair dry well, and then sand it in the right places.
The next step is painting the frame.
We use a synthetic winterizer as a filler. In order not to make a pattern, just put the seat cushion on a piece of padding polyester and cut it out, taking into account allowances of 5-7 cm.
We bend the synthetic winterizer and attach it to the seat with a stapler, while setting the shape.
We do the same with upholstery fabric. The only difference is that the allowances will be even greater here. They should be enough to hide the synthetic winterizer. We attach the finished seat to the updated frame.
We decorate the back with the same upholstery fabric. From the leftovers we make a wide tape, which should be enough to wrap around the back. We fix the beginning of the tape to the side rod with glue and let it dry.
The task comes down to twisting the rods from top to bottom according to the principle of weaving a basket.
When the back is completely braided, we bring the tape back, tuck it into the weave and additionally fix it with glue. Then you just have to wait until the glue is completely dry.
