Long time a ago when we lived in Rishon, I painted an old telephone chair red. The seat was made of woven ropes and in a bad shape, but back then it still hung together.
After 2 years in Sweden, we returned to Israel and I took back the chair but the seat was now completely damaged. It took me some time to get the inspiration to fix it - 2 years actually. Then I got some really beautiful designed fabrics from my sister in Miami, and started to work!
First I got rid of all the ropes of course, then I sawed a wooden board( found on the street) into equal pieces and placed them as the base seat and on that I glued foam from an old chair. Then I riveted a stretchable fabric to keep all in place.
Finally, I riveted a beautiful Satara-patterned fabric and now my heart is at peace, I really don´t enjoy having unfinished projects in my living-room!!!
