The chairs in this meeting room are in desperate need of an update. We completed our first upcycled chair today and it looks awesome! One down - 7 to go! We are re-upholstering the chairs with pre-loved fabrics selected from our 4 themes, branded with 4 different colourways.
|Deconstructing, sanding and painting the frame.|
|Re-upholstering the seat and back panels with pre-loved materials.|
