Upholstering Chair: Part 4

 Over break I FINALLY had time to work on my chair again. Click here for part 3. And it is continuing to go smoothly.

 Next I used cotton stuffing to give the back a bit of padding.

 Next I just had to do the same thing with the front.

 On the front I also used batting over the cotton fill. I found that the cotton fill looked a bit bumpy so the batting helped make it look a bit more smooth.

Next I have to do the pipping trim and fill in a couple paint chips from where I nicked the chair a bit.
