This weekend, Aaron, a West Philly Tool Library member, emailed us to share how he had used our tools most recently. Aaron reported that he had acquired a beautiful antique empire armchair in great condition, except that the bottom was falling out. With help from the Tool Library, he brought new life to his antique chair.
Aaron borrowed our upholstery kit (recently donated to the Tool Library!) and a staple gun, and followed the steps below to rejuvenate to his antique chair. He says the project not only was gratifying, but it was much cheaper to do it himself. Thanks for sharing your project with us, Aaron!
