Covering a stool
This weekend we re-covered a stool that has been in the family since 1890. The stool was used on the farm in years gone by. The first thing I did was strip off the layers of previous covers. This was a seriously gross exercise as all the filth from each decade came floating into the air and made my hands soo grubby that I needed to wash them off every few minutes. The first stuffing was straw with a subsequent update in the 70's being foam rubber. Both were horrid.
