These antique chairs were brought in to us to be restored. The customer didn’t want them recovered as he wanted to keep them original.
As you can see from the before photograph they were pretty beaten up.
The first thing we had to do was match the colours. As you can see the chairs have a mottled effect, so we needed to match both the base and top colours. To match the base colour we had to rub an area of the top colour off to show the base colour underneath.
Once the colours were matched we proceeded to repair the seats, we used the heavy filler and light filler to fill the cracked leather.
Last we re sprayed the seats using the two colours to produce a two tone effect and finished it with a semi matt finish.
This suite was booked for just cleaning. The customer didn't realise that the damage caused by paint splashes could be rectified.
After cleaning the suite, we re-coloured the damaged areas.
