Airstream Reupholstery Project; Dinette
They are Finished!!!
I had run out of cording and zippers after making the seat cushions but it is about 90 miles to the nearest fabric store and that is a little Joann so you can never be sure what will be available. This time I was lucky and they had both. Again it was Wrights cording and Make a Zipper in heavy duty. Make a Zipper comes with about 12 pulls so you could make a lot of zippers out of 3 yards. While we were at the store we had to look at all the sales of course so picked up a few goodies like patterns for dogs, dolls and of course people. Some dressmaker fabric in gorgeous spring colors but I digress.
The backs of the dinette are now done and in their place. If I do say so I they look great. The upholstery fabric is Waverly Grand Central with Waverly Soho Stripe made into piping. We did use the original foam cushions but added some padding to cover the batting that was on them as it was a little sparse and that filled them out better.
Since you read about how they were put together on the first dinette page I won’t go into it again. I still used the Husqvarna Viking SE, Riccar, and HV 935 serger and as usual they did an excellent job. Let’s see. The next part is the valances over the windows and then upholstering the couch but the couch has to wait until I get some help getting it out of there and that will probably whenever the weather is good enough to put in new flooring. There will of course be other projects going on too though so…
Till next time,,,
