Interior, filled with antiques, is very original. This is the last island in the ocean of our time, where you forget about the hustle and seemed to fall out of the rapid flow of life. The same feeling appears because the collected objects have their own history, their own destiny. They seemed to know something that many have not been able to comprehend. These things have found their special character and seemed radiate warmth and kindness.

Today, we show how to restore old furniture, giving them a new look.

This is a chair with a rotten stuff and upholstery fabric seems completely unsuitable for further use. But, we can make a wonderful comfortable chair.

Materials needed: construction stapler, upholstery nails, hammer, upholstery fabric, abrasive sponge, decorative cord, and airbrush.

Remove the old paint layers and varnish using an abrasive sponge.  Cover the entire surface of the chair with a tinting stain.  Paint a thin layer of shellac over the entire chair and wait half an hour for it to dry.

Reupholster the seat pad of the chair as desired. Replace the batting with new batting and cover the whole seat with new fabric stretched across the top and attached to the underside. Position the seat in place and use finishing nails to secure it, if necessary.

Attach the decorative cord.

The old chair appears in all splendors and will to serve faithfully, perhaps for centuries.
