Tub chair to partner the ottoman/blanket box – rug from eBay seller

You know those things that might be OK if, as in the Bog Hope movie “when the wind’s in the east you lean to the west” sort of thing?   Or you squinny up your eyes and look at it upside down, perhaps?

Well this is one of those.  With all good intentions for the shape, the finished product has:
the arms wrong – squared off too much – should flow in one curve with the back for a better look
exceptionally saggy and shapeless back with no elegant line to it

This little chunky friend is here to stay

As we view it almost head-on, sitting in the curved end of the curved window it does the job and hides its saggy bottom nicely from the viewer.

I think, if doing it again, I’d leave out the darts at the bottom and make long slits from the top edge, flair and bend it and papier-mache over the gaps, rubbing down etc, till I got a more shapely shape.

Better luck next time eh 😉
