Doing up the Coromal'....


Well at long last, I've almost finished recovering all the seats in our Coromal,   it's been a long and tedious job and something I'll never tackle again "thanks''

As well as the re-covering, I've also laid new floor covering, another job which had the brain working overtime, what with all the measurements and lifting all the furniture to fit the one piece of Vinyl under everything.

All that's left to do now is reattach the head and backrests to the walls, then were off again.

K.J.

Great Job, Looks great. All you need is to spray them with 3M fabric guard to protect your great work.

 Thanks Dougwe,   No-one has a hope in hell of getting me to do any more upholstery work done, after the struggle I had doing this job, !!!

Yes I could have got some gold buttons, but the ones I used were very cheap, usually $2.99ea  but being a sneaky Kiwi, I went to a shop that was closing down and scored a Jar full ( 52 in total ) for $ 3.00 the lot    .....

Not gold but not bad looking.

Oh, all right then, they don't look too bad KJ BUT gold around the edges would have looked betterer.

Hey KJ,
Mate you are a braver man than me, Ill tell you. We got our Legacy van reupholstered in 2015 and its not a place I want to revisit. As for the buttons, great that you managed to get them so cheap. Now at least, you should have a few spares too.
Cheers
Dave

 G'day Dave,  Yep, like I said.... never again,  since I did the upholstery we have been away in the van for a month and I'm happy to say ... we still have seats in one piece,

The Missis reckons it's because of her quality sewing machine.... nothing to do with the hours of measuring or cutting out I put in though hmmno

Yes I have heaps of buttons left over, I just might add a few more to the seat bases, just to tighten up the covers,  what did someone say about big bums ???

The Missis almost heard that..... Dougwe !!!   LOL

Cheers  Jim
