Die Rooi Bank

29/5/2014

‘Die Rooi Bank’ is Afrikaans for ‘the red couch’. I bought this oak coach in 2000 from a secondhand dealer. It was in an atrocious condition, without any upholstery to be see and all the joints were loose. I took it apart, cleaned up the wood and reassembled it using PVA glue (as appose to the hot hide glue that was used originally). I then re-upholstered the couch from scratch with the red red fabric as seen in the pictures below. The fabric has unfortunately seen too much action from our kids and therefore we decided to replace it with leather from Nakara. In the pictures below, you can see how we did exactly that over one and a halve days.
