This is how they ended up - notice the bottoms are still drying out. Although improved they are far from usable so the next step is to take them down to my upholsterer to see what his verdict is. Do we start from scratch or can he save the bones and recover them? We shall see.
While I was busy with the cushions, S.B. decided to re-build the door.
I won't pretend to know what or how he did it but the door now looks as good as new while still keeping all it's charm and features.
