Chair Reupholstery

So, while we were visiting our friends the F family in Michigan, they treated us to a tour of the preserved/restored Victorian era Cappon House in Holland. Very interesting!

While we were looking through one room, we found out that some of the chairs there had been re-upholstered during the restoration process by our friend Dan F! He told us about having to specially spec and manufacture the fabric to match the original, fasten with authentic tacks, etc.  I have never done furniture upholstery, but I admire the craftsmanship it must have taken  him to do that work.

Dan owns and operates his family upholstery business from a shop that sits on their home property in nearby South Haven, MI.
Many thanks to him and his family for the enjoyable visit and to the Lord for providentially crossing our paths. 😊
