Farstrup Uphostery project

I picked up a Farstrup table and chairs in good condition but with a nasty peach/white fabric on the chairs.


I wanted to do something a bit different, so I picked a bright moss green fabric win flecks of blue, yellow and white in it. It’s actually an M&S uphostery fabric and is really good quality and easy to work with.

I got to work in the morning and quickly realised that I could get the back rests off without destroying the wooden bung that sits on top of the screw. So I found some on eBay that I could replace them with once I’d finished. Getting the buggers out was the hardest bit! I found the best way was the turn a screw into them and then hammer the screw sideways to loosen it and then pull it out by the screw. Some worked better than others and I had to be careful not to damage the chairs.


Anyway… once I’d solved that dilemma o recovered the back rests first as they were more tricky as they were arched. Then I just had the seat cushions to go… all 6 of them!
I’m so pleased with the end result! Here are some pictures of the table in all its glory…


Now available for sale on eBay and on our shop.

I love interiors! I've always enjoyed styling my home and my husband will tell you I'm always moving things around and trying something new. My favs include Mid Century Modern and Ecclectic mixes of contrasting themes such as classical design and pop art.
