This post shows an example of a 'repair and recover' job. The old piano stool belonged to my Aunty Mabel, a great pianist and piano teacher. Don't know exactly how old, but maybe 60 - 80 years (the stool, not Mabel). The upholstery was the original horse-hair and springs - all past its use-by date and rather forlorn.
I'm really pleased with its makeover. The simplicity of the stool I think is well complemented by its gorgeous linen cover (Florence Broadhurst).
