I'm not sure if this is a reupholstery faux pas, but I've decided to keep the batting that remains on the chair. (Obviously, I need to smooth it back into the crease a bunch.) It's this super soft, unrefined wool. Is there any chance I'd be able to find something similar for a good price? Hopefully, I'll also be able to save the batting I had to take off of the back part of the chair. I'm not sure yet where I'll be able to find the stiff cardboard that I had to destroy in order to get all the fabric off.
There's a lot of hindsight going on with this chair. That's what's supposed to happen with a learning project, right?
Inside the chair, I found 30 cents, a Canada flag pin, a stamp, and a bobby pin. The stamp was the most indicative of the era of this chair. See?
In fact, it's likely at least as old as I am.
Anyone know anything else about these stamps?
