Swan Chair: before & after

[click image to enlarge]

Springs are no joke, this chair took FOREVER to finish. What is frustrating about the upholstery process (for beginners anyway) is that when you start the chair you work slowly and meticulously - so much so that once you reach the finishing stages, which are the most important ones aesthetically speaking, you are so ready to be done with project that you end up rushing through the rest and making tons of mistakes...

It's fine though. I finished a project, a very difficult project, so I have to give myself a pat on the back for that. And I must say, on that last day of work it was a relief to finally sit in the chair and find it to be pretty darn comfortable.
