Barley Twist Rocking Chair

This rocking chair had such amazing barely twist carvings that it would have been a shame to see it lost to the dump.  It only needed a new seat and would be great for any home, man-cave, or cottage.  I was taught some upholstery basics at college, but it is not something in which I specialize.

The old seat was made of springs, horse hair, and straw.  There were about 300 tacks holding it all together.

It took a while to remove all the old upholstery, but the wood looked nice the way it was.

I replaced the springs and horse hair with modern foam and a blue tartan fabric.

This wonderful barely twist rocker is saved for many years to come.
