Here are some pics of the glider we re-did last month ..
we purchased the glider on the grounds of Canton during the May / June Canton ..
after we got home from Canton, we dropped the glider off at the warehouse, then we had some issues with our old reliable van and ended up attempting to transport the glider from the warehouse to our workroom in the backseat of our honda civic .. it worked believe it or not .. surprised the heck out of me ..
what the glider looks like all done up ..
at the beginning .. we left the paint finish as it was .. i love old chippy paint ..
the back of the glider folds down .. the seat itself is suspended on the framework by chains ..
the slipcovers for the sides are individual pieces and are made from painters canvas, so it will hold up to the outside .. but i think this piece is best used in a sunroom or covered porch ..
the main slipcover is of the same fabric as the sides .. it ties where the back meets the seat and at each corner ..
back view of the main slipcover ..
placement of the seat cushion .. 4 1/2" foam .. covered in dacron .. vintage mattress ticking used to create the covering which features back zipper and edge cording or welting ..
the back seat cushion measures 2 1/2" thick and is made of the same vintage mattress ticking .. it does not have edge cording or welting ..
the remaining pillows are made using vintage rose floral fabrics from the 1940s .. the side pillows features vintage twisted cotton rope fringe ..
i love this glider, but it's small size makes it desirable for most any use ..
thank you for looking ..
